Book Tour - Final Day

I can't believe it's over, hasn't this week flown by! I hope you've enjoyed the book tour and were able to stop by all the blogs and see all the blocks, projects and quilts that were made using the patterns in Monique's book.

So here's the Pyramid project in the book.

This quilt, which is a very generous lap size quilt, finishes at 61" x 72". All you need to make the center portion of the quilt is 4 brown fat quarters, 4 red fat quarters, and 4 blue fat quarters plus 2 yards of background fabric. Who doesn't have 16 fat quarters and 2 yards of background fabric laying around their sewing room. Add 1 1/2 yards for the outer border and 1/2 yard for the inner border and you have a lap size quilt.

So here are my blocks, (I added one more column than the pattern)

all pieced and ready for some borders. I think they look pretty good just like this.

And here it is all done! I could not be more pleased with that outer border. It does its job perfectly, to finish the quilt without over powering the center blocks.

This is Lifetime Quilt Number 81.
It finished at 72" x 72" and has approximately 1,157 pieces.
The pattern is Pyramid by Monique Dillard
The fabric is Simple Abundance by Bonnie and Camille
