Log Pyramids Quilt

 Looking through my pictures
from Road To California
I realized there are a few still to be shown.
I especially liked the exhibit presented
Log Pyramids
by Liz Harvatine
Los Angeles, CA
member of the Los Angeles Modern Quilt Guild
 Liz wrote:
This design was inspired by traditional log cabin blocks,
using an equilateral triangle
 for the center "hearth"
instead of a square.  I wanted to have
uniformly sized "pyramids" 
with precise piecing 
but added randomness with 
the width of the "logs".
I had an acrylic triangle template 
custom made to facilitate 
trimming the blocks down to size 
while keeping everything centered."
 Modern Quilts are often recognized by the use of 
bold colors and prints
high contrasts
expansive negative space
alternate grid work
(including several other characteristics)
The Founding
Modern Quilt Guild was started in Los Angeles in 2009
and now has over 150 Guilds World Wide.
I just happen to be part of one of them:
The Phoenix Modern Quilt Guild
QuiltCon is the International Conference and Show
hosted by the Modern Quilt Guild
The next show will be
February 2015 in Austin, Texas!
