What are you most proud of? The material, I have been collecting it for a long time. I would have liked another dark material with music stuff on it, but I can not wait forever. He loves music!!! and it will remind him of me whenever he sees his quilt. He loved the quilt I made for Kara (my first ed quilt that I pieced.) He said black and white it match anything. I think he wanted it , but it was already planned for Kara. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I found the first time I made this pattern, when sewing the pieces together, It matters how you arrange the pieces . first row: black second row: black then white third row: White. sew 4 of them together to make white star in the meddle. Use as many square as you want for size. the blocks are 12 inches when completed. The black broader is an inch and a half when finished. I made piano keys (black , white , black, while as a final broader. The pieces were 5 1/2 inches for piano keys, before sewn.
