1000 Pyramids of Color and a Giveaway

Welcome to my Kona Solids Hop post. Many thanks to Madame Samm of Sew We Quilt and Carol of Just Let Me Quilt for keeping us in line. These hops are ONLY possible because of the partnership of our fearless leaders. And a big shout-out to my friend Jeannine (which you will see why at the bottom of the post).

I tried to limit myself to just a little bit of fabric to force my brain to get creative. I have way too many large quilts; something small is easy to start - and finish.

(I was just notified that my little quilt made for this hop was picked up by a magazine for their summer issue, so there won't be a tutorial. Sorry!)

Just a little color, that's all I wanted. While I love the sunrise, it's the sunsets that have my favorite hues!

A set of  Kona charm squares in the Sunset Colorway
Sliced off a strip from each 5" square. (I do hate those pinked edges, don't you? I know why they do this - prevents raveling, but hey - is it the peak or the valley for measuring a 1/4" seam?)
Ordered from Quilt Taffy again - she had exactly what I needed
Now, why did I slice a piece off? Hmmm. Check out the finished quilt below . .

I used a 60 degree ruler to cut these triangles and combined them with Kona Snow fabric.
Did I ever tell you I was a high school math teacher? I have no aversion to math; in fact, I love it all. Give me a formula - ask me to divide and multiply. Figure out angles. I'm in heaven. On to my story..
And, how does it all look together? Remember those cutaways? They are my border.

Facets of Color - my way (yes, not 1,000 pyramids, but close?)
 I took the little bits of leftovers from cutting the triangles and made this:
Combined the little cutaways from the Thousand Pyramids triangles

Added some more Snow and Color triangles
Don't you love how even little bits of fabric can become something awesome?!!

I have enough leftovers to make 6 of these blocks. They are 11-1/2" high. I'll keep you posted.

I agonized for 2 weeks about the quilting. I wanted something "modern". I told my friend Jeannine and she offered her Bernina walking foot, which fits my faithful Bernina 1230. What can I say? except THANK YOU, JEANNINE. This was truly amazing. No folds, no pleats, no wrinkles - and it lies flat. Yes, I teach free motion quilting (which I only do on my Pfaff 2144 and I get marvelous results), but this was a fun thing to do on my Bernina.


Facets of Color from the back of the quilt
Thousand Pyramids is a traditional pattern that I've made several times. That is the name of this Kona quilt. What do my other quilts look like?

Bright Triangles with Dragonflies Border
 
Zig Zag Safari baby quilt with matching pillows

What's my giveaway? A set of 3 half-yard cuts in a sunset color, a sunrise color and a neutral white background:

Just leave me a comment telling me whether you prefer sunrises or sunsets. That's all. If you're a no-reply blogger, make sure I have your email address (not a link to a web page or blog page). Contest is over January 22 (Wednesday) at midnight.

And now let's see what my fellow bloggers are up to today!

  1. Congratulations on your pattern being published. It is a pretty little thing. And I love your play with all the scraps/cut aways. I am a sunrise person - love mornings.

  2. I'd say it depends on where I am. On vacation in Hawaii, I prefer sunsets...relaxing on the beach watching the sun sink on the horizon. Here at home, I love sunrises (when we have them in Oregon) because they're like the starting gun on a new day full of potential to get some quilting done! pbstrand@msn.com aka Beth @ Words & Stitches (who is excited to share a hop day with you, I'm a big fan!)

  4. Your quilt is wonderful. Congratulations on the publishing of your pattern. Sunsets are the best!

  5. how I love your quilt and amazed at what can be done with the left overs, wonderful. Like you I have a loved bernina 1230. Sunrises are my favourite, have lots of photos taken from my front garden but they have now built on the filed opposite and have lost the best of them as the roofs are in the way

    ReplyDelete
  6. You never disappoint with your creative quilts, and these are just as terrific as usual. I am a sunset kind of girl, as I usually like to sleep in, so see very few sunrises!

    ReplyDelete
  7. I love how your quilting turned out! It's hard to pick which is my favorite color line. I think they're both perfect and it depends largely on the project I have in mind for them.

    Congrats on the quilt being picked up by a magazine!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Very nice quilt. I love the way you used everything... the cut strips for the border and the small cutaways from the pyramids to make that great block. I love sunrise and sunsets and all their colors for different reasons. I love sunrise ... it's the dawn of a new day! I also love to watch a sunset and reflect on that day. I cannot chose between these color palettes either. I am not undecided. I just love 'em all ... :-) Pat

  9. Big time congratulations to you Debby on your pattern being published ... yay you!! Beautiful work and I adore your triangles ... I was looking for such an idea for a different project so I am very inspired to see your quilt. Thank you for sharing!

  10. Love your quilt and the colors you picked! I prefer sunsets as sunrise is a bit early for this night owl! Thank you for sharing and congratulations.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Sunsets are my favorite because I see them most often. I'm just not a morning person. Love the fabric you chose for your quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Your quilt is fabulous! The straight line quilting does give it that modern feel. And I love the clever blocks you made with the left overs. Well done!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I love the quilting you used. It compliments the quilt

    ReplyDelete
  14. Former math teacher here, as well (stay-at-home mother at the moment)... Love your quilt :) As for sunrise or sunset? They both are beautiful, and I do look forward to my bed at the end of the day (sunset), there is just something special about the possibilities of a brand new day... So sunrises for me!

  15. I am a sunrise person; and especially like yellows. Love your quilt!

  16. Your work is beautiful!! I enjoy the beautiful sunsets we have here in the desert SW.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Sunrises make me happier, but I'm usually asleep for them. I loved the sunsets over the ocean when I lived in San Clemente.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Debby, you are the master of working with triangles! I am madly in love with that hexagonal piece. The diamonds look so neat made out of triangles (oh, oh - and your piecing is perfection). And I adore the simple little quilt made with equilateral triangles. So simple and beautiful. Love them all!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I love all colors! The more the better! Congrats on your pattern.

  37. I knew that I'd love what you created for this blog hop!! How wonderful to have your pattern published too!! I have my eye on making a diamond quilt (similar to Kaffe Fassett's Cool Diamonds) but am nervous to mess up... angles, bias... etc I would appreciate any tips!! Thanks!

  39. It is a little after 7 a.m., and I am up a bit later than usual. I prefer sunrises, but I have to admit to REALLY enjoying sunsets when I lived in Florida. I never saw any to rival them.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I love the colours in you quilt! I love sunrises and sunsets, though I see more sunsets! When we lived in the Arctic both sunrises and sunsets were amazing. I've never seen such beautiful indigo shades wrapping all around the horizon except there.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Congrats on being published. How cool is that? Love your color selection and it is a sweet little quilt. Where I live, I love both the sunrises and sunsets. So much color in the sky.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I am a morning person so I prefer sunrises. But I do love the blues in the sunset bundle.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Thats cute! I love the colors and the little strips around it. Where I live, both the sunrises and sunsets are spectacular, I can't choose which ones are best!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Beautiful quilt. I am a sunset woman. Mostly due to the fact I am never up to see the sun rise. This time of year we have very little sun.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Publication? ....congratulations!!!!
    Wonderful pattern and it makes those great colors work so well.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Congrats on your lovely quilt and on getting it published too. I am a sunrise girl, I love seeing the beautiful pinks we get in our sky in the early morning. Thank you for a fun giveaway too.

  47. Congrats on getting your pretty quilt published. I like both if I am up in time for the sunrise that is, lol. Thanks for the great giveaway and for sharing. vickise at gmail dot com

    ReplyDelete
  48. Oh, what a choice! Sunrise for the promise of the day would have to be my favorite. But I do like sunsets with the firey close to the day, too. Too many trees here in town to see them from home, though.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Love your cute triangles. I just got a triangle ruler and I am anxious to use it. Sunsets, of course.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Congrats.. MS. kRATOVIL, I got a math question, after I tell you how nice this is.. where is 2 7/8 on these rulers. someone should make a ruler with just the hard marks, make them stick out ..

  52. Love the pyramid quilt. Too bad we will have to wait for the mag, but it was wonderful to see it.

    I also like the "leftovers" quite a lot.

    I like sunrises, tho I don't see many nice ones living in town as I do.

  58. I love your quilt! Sunrises are my favorite, it's always so quiet at that time of day.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I love sunsets! I saw a bright strip of sunset this week that look like a blaze of fire. It had been a cloudy day and I think the sun was trying to peek out just before setting.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Well that's a tough question! Choosing between the two....but I shall go with the Sunrise, since it comes first. :)

    ReplyDelete
  61. I see why they loved the quilt and wanted it in their magazine. I love it!

  67. I love it, Debby! What a great use of the Kona solids! I'll be watching for it in the magazine!

  70. I like sunrise best. It seems more peaceful. Not everyone is up and out to see the sunrise so it is like your own private time to enjoy what the Lord has laid out for you!

    ReplyDelete

  71. I love mornings, can't keep my eyes open late at night.
    Love the zig zag safari quilt. My new grandson's room is decorated in wild animals, this will be a cute WH for him.
    also, you mentioned your 1000 pyramids would be in a magazine, but you didn't say which magazine. I don't want to miss it when it comes out.

  77. Great quilts! I love the Thousand pyramid pattern and hope to try it this year. My favorite is sunset.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Love Kona solids so anything is a pushover for me. I have been using a lot of grays lately. I think sunset would be appropriate for a quilt I have in mind. Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Sunsets definitely! I don't get up early enough for sunrises. I love to scrap play as well and love your little design. Congrats on your pattern being published.

    ReplyDelete

    Love the way the leftovers made such cool blocks:)
    I love both as long as they are beautiful:)

    ReplyDelete
  81. Beautiful. I wish, I had a math mind. Things just start to glaze over for me if I have to think about it! LOL! It's Sunsets for me. I started my work day at 4am, for many years. Those days are gone. I don't like getting up in the middle of the night! LOL!! You always delight us with your creations! ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  82. I love what you did with your scraps, and the way your quilting turned out! I personally would much rather WATCH a sunset, but I think the colors of a sunrise are the best. Too bad for me... ;)

    ReplyDelete
  83. I am definitely a Sunset kind of girl; many years ago we could see fantastic sunrises from our home,but I realized how much I missed the sunsets. I love your baby quilt and the quilting!

  94. I much prefer a sunset because I am not a morning person!

    ReplyDelete
  95. Sunset colors! I really like them both but I see more sunsets than sunrises!

    ReplyDelete
  96. The only way I see a sunrise is if I am up from the night before! The ones I have seen have been beautiful, but sunset in Las Vegas, not on the strip, but in the mountains, was spectacular. I love the triangles. Did you use the larger of the cut off parts for the triangles?

    ReplyDelete
  97. Congratulations on your quilt being published, I'll have to make sure I pick up a copy. I love the sunrise colors but as a night owl I really don't want to see a sunrise unless I'm still up. Every once in a while I catch a beautiful sunset full of beautiful pinks and oranges so that makes me happy.

    ReplyDelete
  98. Nothing not love here!! You are so amazing...

  100. Debby, your quilts are always so stunning. It does not surprise me your newest was picked up by a magazine. I only hope it's one of the magazines I subscribe to.

    I prefer sunset myself. The colors are usually more relaxing and with so many different shades. Plus, it means the stresses of the day can be let go.

    ReplyDelete
  101. I love your quilt and your quilting choice is perfect. What you did with your scraps is also stellar. Me personally, I'm a sunset kinda gal. Oh and congrats on having your pattern published.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Your quilt is lovely...please let us know what magazine ir will be in. Also, I like both collections, but prefer Sunset a tiny bit more.

  103. Growing up and living on the Oregon Coast most of my life, I've always loved to watch the sun set over the ocean.

  105. I love the sunset colors. I am fascinated by the star you made from leftovers. What intrigued me was adding pieces around it, the star disappeared.

    ReplyDelete
  106. Do I prefer sunrises or sunsets -- that is an easy one since I am definitely not a morning person. I knew I wasn't a morning person the day I cracked the egg over the kitchen sink, however, seeing the egg go down the drain did wake me up:) But I have seen some really beautiful sunsets!

  107. Very cute quilts, love the colors. I prefer sunrises, since I am a morning person and it is so quiet in the am.

  108. Sunrise. I like to welcome in a new day (but seldom do!). Either way, too many trees around here to see either on the horizon.

    ReplyDelete
  109. Sunsets because the colors are so saturated. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete

  130. Great quilts! Thanks for sharing how you used all the spare pieces to make something news, I'd go with sunset.

    ReplyDelete
  131. Facets of Colour is delightful. I like how you used the entire charm. I am partial to sunsets as I get to view magnificent ones through my front windows and from our deck year round. I enjoy sunrises too but I am not so often out of bed at that time of day; especially during our northern summers. Thanks for sharing. Congratulations on having your pattern published.

    ReplyDelete
  132. Wow, I certainly like how you put the colors to work on the little quilt. And that pieced star is very Sharp. Thanks for sharing, K

    ReplyDelete
  133. Congratulations on getting published this summer! Your quilt and you deserve it. It's fabulous to make use out of the leftovers - it's like dessert after dinner!! Well, I like both though I'm not an early riser so I see more sunsets. Oh, a few years ago on a trip to Hawaii, we got up at 2 a.m. to make the trip by van to the top of Haleakala on Maui. What a sunrise that was!! Then, we biked down the volcano to return to our starting point. What a ride - what a sunrise!!

    ReplyDelete
  134. Your quilt is gorgeous, and so are the others.
    Congrats on your publication.

    I guess I will have to say sunsets, because I'm seldom up for the sunrise. I'm retired, and I tend to stay up late and sleep late.

  151. Love your quilt colors. I love blues. I enjoy a good sunset. Sunset means I'm on my way home and soon I can sit and relax and forget about a long day.

  152. I'm just catching up on the hop and you've blessed my eyes with your gorgeous quilts. Thank you. Amazing color combos. There's a lot of math in quilting and that's why your quilts are so perfect.

  156. Congratulations on having your quilt picked up by a magazine Debby! It is truly a beautiful quilt and the perfect color for the quilt scene this summer.
    I think there's nothing more beautiful than a Texas sunset.

  158. I'm definitely a sunset kinda person! Thanks for the giveaway chance. I love what you did with your Konas. I didn't know you were a math teacher before. I was a teacher, with a minor in math, and all that stuff isn't scary to me until we reach calculus. LOL dezertsuz at gmail

  163. I think sunrises are more lovely, but that may be because I see so many less of them.

  169. I love your little pyramids and quilting on the back. What a good use of the scraps from the triangles. I might try something like that, but maybe that should be an idea for another class!!!
    Looking forward to seeing you in class in Atlanta in March!

  173. I'm not surprised that you were a math teacher. When I went to college, I knew I wanted to be a math teacher. My mother was a math teacher and so was my brother. Now my daughter is. Well, I took the first computer science class offered at our university and the rest was history for me. I did finish my math and education majors and got my computer science minor. I love the challenge of math. Your quilt is fabulous and I'm thrilled that it has been picked up by a magazine. You are a talented lady. I am definitely a sunset kind of gal. I tend to like pastels. Of course, there can be some dynamic sunsets, too. Your quilting is terrific on your quilt, too. Thanks for participating and being a great inspiration for all.

  175. I'm a morning type (most of the time), there's always the potential for something new and fresh. What a sweet little quilt :)

    ReplyDelete
  176. OOO, that's a hard one! Especially b/c those skies are so beautiful in Texas! I'd have to go with sunset, mostly b/c I'm NOT a morning person! Yikes!

    ReplyDelete
  177. Some days I'm a sunrise person and some days it's more about the sunset. Congratulations on your pattern being published!

    ReplyDelete
  178. I like sunsets, because I'm not a morning person, and usually I get to share my sunsets with my husband so it's more special. I really like the star you're making with the left overs, that will be a pretty neat quilt as well! Thank you for sharing Debby!

  179. I'll look forward to seeing your quilt published this summer. Sunsets are a winner hands down with me. Those gorgeous deep colors speak to me and help me unwind from the day. Just a little free mental health therapy. Sunrises are beautiful, but I rarely have time to enjoy them so give me plenty of sunsets to make up for missing the sunrises.

  180. I love your little quilt. The colors really appeal to me. Love both sunrises and sunsets but if I have to pick, I'll say sunrise. Thanks!

  181. I like what you did with the scraps. Do you have a plan for them yet? I think they would make a nice table runner. I like sunsets. I'm awake for a lot fewer sunrises. :) Thanks for the chance to win.

    I really like how small fabrics combined together strategically can become something with such a big impact! So beautiful! I love sunset!

  183. I live on a hill and get to enjoy both sunrises and sunsets...
    I think I enjoy the sunsets more because I can have a glass of wine and sit on my porch and enjoy it thoroughly!

  184. I prefer sunsets. Maybe because I'm not usually up at sunrise!! :o)
