    My fifth quilt!

    I have only been quilting for about a year, so I am truly a novice. I made up this design and it came out so I hung it in my dining room.

    That is very striking! I like the use of tan with the blacks and whites!

    Thanks Kathy! And thanks for the suggestion of using "piano keys" for the border.

    You did a very nice job on your quilt. It really is striking. Consider putting a hanging sleeve on the back though to get rid of those push pins. I put on a sleeve - stick a dowel in it - and then just put two push pins in the wall. If you make the sleeve a little shorter than the quilt, you can hide all the hanging equipment behind it and the quilt "floats" on the wall. Much better for your quilt - and your wall!
