    Strings and Keys

    String blocks for the center, and then piano key blocks for the borders... simple, but bright. This is one of my latest charity quilt tops that I make for my vets.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    super fun... I am just getting ready to start my first string quilt. I have done some research on the internet and here on the board so I'm crossing my fingers that I've got the idea. However, I really enjoyed your quilt, the inner border and the piano border are wonderful ideas. Your quilt turned out fantastic.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.
