Steadily Working - Half Way There

I've got Livin' On a Prayer stuck in my head right now since I'm half way there... oooh-oooh... Yeah. I've been working on my 1000 Pyramids quilt steadily. I took a break from it Friday morning-Sunday evening when I took a short notice road trip to Ithaca for Cornell Hockey senior night.

I've made mention before that I'm a big college hockey fan, and the previous weekend Cornell was playing against Harvard (a short 10 minutes from where I live) which meant I played host to a friend who lives in Ithaca, and he suggested that since I have free time until I go to Navy training that I should come to the last home games of the season. I took him up on the offer of his guest room.

That was my little break from sewing, but it's still coming along nicely. And I've decided that I'm going to do concentric circle quilting once the top is done. This quilt is full of sharp lines and hard angles, so I want a quilting pattern that will soften it up.
