    What I've been working on

    This is a quilt that a co-worker has commissioned me to make. This is the easiest pattern I have pieced yet! It actually took more time to cut it out than it did to sew it! It is a square in a square pattern. I added a piano key border and have been struggling with what I want to use for the ends of the border. I tried a log cabin block but it didn't look right. I may just pick one of the colors of the quilt and use it as one big square for each corner. Any suggestions?

    Thanks for looking!

    Gorgeous! I like your idea of the blocks for the corners.

    Agreed...I like the corner block idea. The quilt sure looks like you spent alot of time on it. Nice to hear the pattern is easier than it looks. Great job.

    Looking good. Think blocks from the quilt would make great corners.

    Your quilt is beautiful, love the colors. I also like the idea of squares for the corners.

    I agree with irishrose with the mitered corners. But, it will look awesome no matter how you decide to finish it.
