One Monthly Goal May finish

I had a lot of inquiries about the fabric I used for the Panama Pyramid alternate triangles.This is the last of the fabric piece and luckily most of the info part of the selvage is intact. 
I really struggled deciding how to quilt Panama Pyramids. A lot of time was spent perusing my machine quilting books. This is a page from a book by Amanda Murphy and I liked some of these triangle designs. 

I  simplified a design so the quilting wouldn't be so tight and used an arc ruler to quilt the center shape and the echoing, then added a little bump-back feathering to fill the space.     



 It went pretty fast and I could work across the quilt without breaking my thread. Even better, after the first couple rows, I realized I could quilt an upper and lower triangle together--less rolling--yay!

Willow agreed to help with the photo shoot, but not to modeling a mask. 

This is her "stink-eye" glare. She's mad at me now.


We tried a few pictures outdoors before our mid-morning walk but the chippie that lives under the porch was extremely distracting! 

I guess this is the best one we are going to get!

  1. I really like how you chose to quilt this. Which of Amanda's books are you showing there? I'd like to see more, but from the list of books on her blog, I wasn't sure which one you were using.
    Aren't our furry friends eyes so expressive? No mistaking that look!

    1. I agree. I love the various choices from the book and understand how it takes a lot of contemplation before making a decision. I also looked at her books, but couldn't tell which it was. Your quilt is beautiful and I do like the quilting design you chose.

  13. Your pyramid quilt is just beautiful. It's so balanced - I mean it's calming, and energizing, both. Great job with your machine quilting. And... what a cute pup!

  16. I don't recall Paula Barnes doing a line with a lighter blue. It is quite pretty. Most of what I see in her fabric lines are dark and very much alike. Similar to Kansas Troubles always using the same colorways.
    Do you ever have the desire to machine quilt for others?
