1000 Pyramids - My Oldest UFO
Oops! I thought I had confessed all of my UFOs and was making progress on finishing them. I forgot this one.
I started this quilt 9 or 10 years ago and was actually hand sewing the triangles together. It was supposed to be a Charm Quilt, which as you probably know, means all the triangles would be from a different fabric.
I'm not sure what to do with it because:
1. I don't really like it
2. I don't have any idea where I got the instructions from and so don't really know how to proceed.
But, after I laid out the blocks I thought the pattern was pretty striking from a distance.
I don't think I will ever finish it as a completely hand sewn quilt, but might be able to incorporate it into a smaller quilt or as part of the backing of another quilt.
I have been thinking of making a true charm quilt using the 1000 Pyramids pattern, but it will be made on my sewing machine. I will post a picture of the possible quilt soon.
