Free pattern day: Thousand Pyramids quilts!

Thousand Pyramids and Diamond quilts are among our favorite one-block patterns. Isosceles triangles (pyramids) create a beautiful, impressionistic look when made with patterned fabrics in coordinating colors.  Here are some wonderful FREE patterns for 1000 pyramids.... use them to design your own "pyramid scheme"!

Note: This post was originally inspired by the 2014 Winter Olympics, which took place in Sochi, Russia.  The theme was based on the patchwork quilt! The Sochi designs resemble Thousand Pyramids and Diamond quilts.


The orange Olympics banner reminded us of Jan Krentz's classic "Indian Summer" quilt:
