Building a Pyramid


I don't know how many "blocks" it will take to build a BIG pyramid quilt so I started sewing pieces together to get a guestimate.   The piece above is about 84 inches wide. Now I'm aiming for 96 inches long. 

I spent all last year sewing up my 2.5 inch scraps in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge color of the month plus neutral scraps into these Pyramid units following a tutorial on Molly Flanders.  Now it's kind of fun to reach into the bag, pick a few pieces and randomly sew them together.   I'm not going to make anymore until I see how big my quilt happens to be with these.  Then I'll make more. I'm too lazy to count them up.  

Well, it does seem like I'm a little light on green pyramids so I may have to check out the green 2.5 inch scraps and make a few green pieces to throw in the bag. 

And that's my scrappy project on hand this fine Scraptastic Tuesday!

I love pyramids - it's been awhile since I made one - one more idea on the long growing list

It's fabulous and anything suggested by Mary Duggan must be good in my book. Good luck and more green is good too (my fav colour). Thanks for linking up with #scraptastictuesday

Wow! That's going to take a lot of pyramids! I hope that bag is really full!
It's going to be a fantabulous quilt!
