What materials did you use? I had a black/white/neutrals layer cake on hand, and thought it would be a good color chice to make a small quilt for the living rooom color scheme at my son and daughter-in-law's new house. When I went to check what I might have to use for the back, I found a just right length of black and white birch trees fabric that I bought just because I loved it one day at a quilt shop. I have only a few piano-key scraps of the layer cake left. and only a narrow strip of the birch bark fabric which was trimmed off in squaring up the quilt, so I used the fabric to maximum advantage. I also used a small amount of solid black for the binding and some of the piano-keys in the border. They are pretty short keys, because the size was limited by the amount of backing fabric.

I wanted a nap-sized quilt to hang over the back of the couch in a black/white living room. I made the tabble runner Square-agonal pattern using 10 inch squares instead of the 5 inch, and I made two of the entire pattern, and joined them side-by-side to create the quilt. I used the leftover blocks of the layer cake to make a shallow piano-key border, and backed the quilt with a birch bark fabric that I had on hand, so I was able to quickly create the quilt using materials I had on hand. I am learning free motion quilting in another Craftsy class, so this is one of my early attempts. Don't look at it too closely, but it really looks acceptable, and some day I will laugh at the primitive meander.

Egald's...what a gorgeous design! You did what I teach in my lectures, enlarge the size of the blocks and make more than one and sew them together. I love the black and white and please don't make excuses for your work, it is absolutely lovely!
