    Hi Y'all,
    A few of you knew I was getting ready to use that X-block tool and the Night Weave pattern. I enlarged it some (that was quite the challenge!!) and added piano key border. The quilt is a wedding gift for my DS's best friend. He owns a piano bar in San Marcos, TX. He has no idea I've made this. The back will be the piano fabric and the black on black. I'm including a close up of the fabrics. The copper splats are gorgeous in person..very metallic.
    Thanks for your interest.

    nice to hear your opinion...ya know....I tried to make something very masculine, non-traditional, hoping I did just that. He married first time at 44 on 10-10-10 in from of the Colliseum in Rome, Italy
