What are you most proud of? The fact that the third charm pack made the piano key border without one strip to spare - somebody up there must have been smiling on me that day! (Of course, I could have made a four-patch corner out of leftover sashing or border fabric if I ran out, but didn't.) When I'd finished it I stood back and wished that I'd used a black-based fabric (as on the back) as the sashing between the centre and the piano keys, but never mind! The quilt goes with my furniture, which is cream and terracotta colour, so it lives on the back of a sofa, to protect it from the sun and also from Rupert, my cat, who loves to sit on the backs of the sofas. As it's protecting the sofa near a large window, I imagine it will fade in the course of time (even here in England!), but as most of the colours are quite muted, I don't think it will matter too much.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It would be more economical, especially if wishing to make a slightly larger quilt, to use a layer cake, cut down into four to make 160 x 5-inch squares.

Of course you can do it, Desna! I think that, by now, you've found that you can! Thank you for your kind comment!

Very nice, I love the fabric you chose for the backing too.

Thank you. Although putting a nice fabric on the back adds to the cost of the project enormously, it would be a pity to "spoil the ship for a ha'porth of tar" as they say! I've used Egyptian cotton sheets to back one or two quilts, but it works out nearly as expensive and, of course they are plain, which is all right if it's a bed quilt as you don't look at the back very much, but throws etc need an interesting reverse side.
