A Thousand Pyramids // Finished Modern Quilt

(Note: The quilt pattern is called 1000 Pyramids–it is so much easier than it looks. I just made my own template and went for it.)

I spent much of yesterday playing with kids and sewing binding on a few smaller projects while listening to talks (and even a sermon or two) during the semi-annual LDS General Conference. My favorite sermon was also given by a family friend (and the man who performed our wedding), Bishop David Burton. He spoke on charity–to paraphrase, no matter what else we may do, if we are not able to feed the hungry, help the poor, and comfort the weary, then we will have failed as a people and as a church. In a time of need in Japan and throughout the world, including in our own communities, his talk struck a chord with me.
Note: Speaking of helping those in need, today is the kick-off day for  {Modern} Relief–Japan.   There are some beautiful quilts being raffled off–the entry fee is $10. Go check them out–all money is being donated to efforts in Japan.

 I’m going to put this in the mail today, a whole week before the deadline! I also made my partner a mug rug out of my failed lonestar quilt attempt. I loved the palette too much to throw the whole thing away.
