BOM Top -- Ready to Layer!

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!

Q&A with Maggie Lea

mpac5000 asked:
Great job. Your quilt came out beautifully. How wide are your piano keys? How wide was your sashing?
Maggie Lea answered:
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
silverilex asked:
wonderful border!=- I had not heard of the piano key border before really adds a richness to the other blocks
Maggie Lea answered:
Thanks, I think that is the right name. It also uses up all the left over prints :)
