I tend to have far too many piano key borders because I find them an easy way to use up scraps. Well my husband challenged me to do some thing completely different..... So I used "piano keys as the main feature of this quilt. They are appliqued in place over the previously pieced background. The inspiration was the bamboo scaffolding we saw in Taiwan which held together at amazing heights while looking very flimsy.
Questions: Does this quilt need an appliqued focus point in the centre? (suggested by a visiting teenager)
What kind of pattern would you use to quilt it? This is what I was thinking but struggling to choose the design and so began seeking advice....
The quilt is for an 8 year old boy who specifically wanted something red blue and black. Certainly this validated the way i often work... the Paino key boarders were assembled with out the red previously but this meant that he was able to express his desire for specific colors at 5pm yesterday i had it pinned out in place by 12 noon for his birthday party - and I only had to say it would be a couple of week before it was quilted. Totally worth it with the look of joy in his face when he said "She made it for me"
