What a beautiful quilt! As for the outer border it depends whether or not you have extra strips to make the piano key border as shown..otherwise you could do a chunky border using rectangles of different fabrics. Judy at Quilting with Ragdolls had the same dilemma not long ago. You can read about it here Hope that helps :)

Did you make this for me? Because I really think you did. This just screams me, right down to the solid centers (I love a solid somewhere in a 30's quilt). Your quilt top looks like HAPPY CANDY!

I have no idea what you should do but man, that is one very gorgeous quilt! I'm sure that whatever you do, it will turn out beautifully. And if my postman delivered me those goodies, I think I would almost kiss him!


OOOOh I love this one too. I'd do a nice solid yellow. Or red.. but still a solid. I love this. Of course I love thirties. Nice work Lil' Doe!

What a beautiful quilt! I loved your String Quilt with your special touch but this one is speaking loudly to me. I'm going to have to add it to my "to do" list. Would that be OK with you?

One of these days I'm going to have to try making a quilt that isn't just plain squares. This is so pretty, I love your fabric choices!

Hi! Mary Ann suggested on her blog that we visit you. Wow! I am so glad she did. I love your blog, and I love this quilt. I don't have a 30's quilt, but I have a lot of 30's fabric (a huge collection).
Weird, huh?
