What materials did you use? Group of fat quarters found this past Feb. at MidAtlantic Quilt Show, centered around burgundy print by Red Rooster.

What are you most proud of? I did not have quite enough of just the background for sashing, border, binding, so I worked in all of the fabrics used into intersecting squares in sashing and piano key border. A bit over the top for what I have done to date, but I am pleased with the result. That and my geese on the burgundy mostly go the same direction :)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Perfect that 1/4" scant seam, take your time and have fun!

Great job. Your quilt came out beautifully. How wide are your piano keys? How wide was your sashing?

Sashing is 2.5 before stitching, border is 5". Keys varied from 1.25 to 2" before stitching. I used strips of.freezer.paper to stabilize while I stitched border

Love that border! It helps pull those blocks together and adds great contrast to the dark sashing.

wonderful border!=- I had not heard of the piano key border before really adds a richness to the other blocks

Thanks, I think that is the right name. It also uses up all the left over prints :)

Oooh, now I'm thinking of doing a piano key border after seeing yours. Good job!
