Piano Keys!

There are many different ways to do piano keys …

For the Purple Round Robin (Quilt-as-you-Go), the piano keys are lengthwise  and for the Blue one, they are perpendicular to the quilt.

Here is a video of the piano key borders going on the Purple quilt:

For the Blue Quilt, I cut 1½” slices from the 10″ stack of Island Batik “Freedom” fabrics and sewed them together.

This piece was cut into 2½” pieces and sewn onto my grey square.

I still haven’t decided about the centre block.  Will I do some appliqué? Some embroidery?  I’m sure I’ll decided before the quilt is finished!

Here is the purple Quilt-as-you-Go with the Piano Keys sewn on.

SEW …

How are you doing with your Round Robin?

Linky Party

Here is a Linky Party for you to show off your work!  You have a few options for posting … you can post a link to your blog, a link to your Instagram or a link to a Pinterest page.

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

What’s the next round you ask???

Pinwheels … I haven’t made them yet, so I’m not sure how wide the round will be.  It’s up to you to decide how big and how many pinwheels you want to add to all 4 sides! Do what you want, but add some pinwheels!   Have fun!  There will be another linky party next week!

Friday Finish … NOT

But I do have a flimsy, actually 2, completed.  These are from the Elvira Sew-Along that GE Quilt Designs hosted this past weekend.  I was going to make one large quilt, but decided that 2 smaller ones would be more appropriate for me to make at this time.

Happy Quilting!

    • Hi Kathleen,
      I know what you mean about feeling scattered! Once this craziness settles down, I’m sure it’ll be easier to focus. Elvira will get done when it gets done.
      Take care,
      Happy Quilting! 🙂
