Thousand pyramids, a review of triangle designs by Kathy K. Wylie

Note: This post was 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:

  1. I have a triangle UFO... There's always something else you "have to" work on.
    Thanks for sharing the triangle quilts. Gorgeous.

  2. Have made several diamond/triangle quilts and have several UFOs. Just not enough time in the day, you know!? LOL

  3. Great post! I discussed the quilt connection to Sotchi yesterday with my students at school who had a math competition on patchwork!
