You go, girl!! 1000 Pyramids is daunting to say the least, but am glad that you and Ahren are having a good time colaberation on this striking quilt!



I love the photograph and the fabrics you are using are a perfect match. You can totlly use a border perhaps a light smallinner border and then a darker wider one for the outside.

What an amazing picture that your son used as his fabric inspiration!!!


An awesome color combo that matches that dramatic photo perfectly. .


The first quilt I ever made was a thousand pyramid quilt. I saw a picture of one in a magazine and I was hooked. The quilt did have a border on it so I put a border on mine. The quilt was also made with scraps, but I knew nothing about quiltmaking so I would just buy 1/8 yard pieces of fabric to hand cut with a scissors - no rotary cutters back in the mid-70's! The colors you are using a fabulous and they are going make a stunning quilt!

I did a close up of the fabrics and they are lovely. Ahren is going to be so pleased.


Looks amazing! Kudos to both you and your son! This will look spectacular on a bed.

The fabrics are elegant! This is going to be a gorgeous quilt! Ahren clearly inherited your skills in choosing fabric!

I love that inspiration photo! It does seem like the perfect line to give the desired effect. That is an ambitious pattern--did you choose it or did he? : )


WOW - the picture is amazing, and I think your quilt is too!!!

this is a perfect rendition of that photo. When I random piece, I just make sure its not the same as the next one. Then it's the challenge of putting the rows together.This is fabulous.

This quilt is GORGEOUS! I am hoarding the BEE CREATIVE fabric I have in my stash just waiting for the perfect quilt pattern ;-)


Love the inspirational photo and your progress! You really captured the look he was going for. You're just a little worker bee 😂

What more can I say but stunning! I am travelling for work to that tiny island at the bottom of Australia - Tasmania. Have managed to pop into a coupke of quilt shops along the way, brought some cute fabric to make a couple of baby boy quilts.
