Last Monday I told you about one of the Louisiana Traveling Quilt blocks that I worked on in an attempt to catch up with everyone else.
I had fallen behind while the studio was playing storeroom to the house, so I needed to work on several blocks as quickly as possible. Happily, I am now caught up. Or at least I don't have a quilt top right now.
So I thought I'd tell you about the other quilt that I worked on.
Unfortunately I don't have very many pictures of the quilt.
This is the quilt as it arrived at my house (only it's much prettier in person). Of course, I fell in love! I decided to add one more color by adding another border to the bottom.
I made a long strip of piano keys in the neutrals that are so dominant in the center with a little of this teal that I've been saving for a special quilt. It has a fun pattern of strips of newspaper.
Eventually I had enough piano keys to reach from one end to the other. Then it was just a matter of stitching them together and sewing them in.
If you look closely in this last photo, you can see the newspaper strips. It was the reason that I bought the fabric. As a reader, I simply could not walk away from it.
