Default My Boyfriend Actually Asked for One

I have been quilting for 2.5 years, and this is my 14th quilt. My boyfriend never said a word when I made quilts for my sister, my brother, elderly aunts and uncles. I made one for one of my good friend and he said, "Marji gets one before I do?" I told him I never figured he would want one, and he said, "I would love anything you made for me". Aw, so sweet. So I made him this, I figured I would post it before I quilted it because I won't have a place to hang it flat after I've quilted it (it's a little crooked on my design wall). The pattern is based on "Seville" by Cluck Cluck Sew, but I didn't make it as large and I added the piano key border. He loves it and can't wait to have it on his sofa.
