    This is the top of a scrappy lap quilt I have been working on for a while off and on in between other projects. There is no rhyme or reason to it and the centers dont even match up, but my son loves it.... so he's going to get it when I finish it.

    I really like it - the borders really make the colors pop.

    I think it is great; and the piano key border is the perfect addition.

    That is really nice. Did you remember to feed your furbabies or did those poor puppies have no lunch?

    The blocks I learned about here on this board. Someone left a web site for 7" Muslin blocks. The muslin is your foundation square. You lay the first strip down the middle at a diagonal and the second strip RST until you get to the end and turn to other side and finish that side. turn it to the backside and trim all around the 7" square and BINGO the block is done. This was one of the easiest and most fun to do.
