Strippy Pyramids

 The strippy pyramids top is assembled and added to the dreaded pile of tops.

I rescued two pieces of this orange DSQuilts print from the clearance rack at JoAnn's yesterday. It is just enough for the back. I guess I'm not finished with orange yet.

I'm trying to find a place in my house to photograph quilts when no one else is here to hold them. Can you see the 9-patch peeking through the white?

 Using clothespins to clip the 9-patch to the curtain rod worked pretty well. I thought I could just pin the new top to it, but there is too much light shining through.

This window in our bedroom was one of the selling points of this house.

Have a colorful weekend!

Love the setting you came up with for the strippy triangles - very cool. I think we all need a bit of orange in our lives as spring approaches - hopefully!
