I'm really glad I did the piano key border. There's so much piecing in this one that a plain ol' strip-of-fabric border would have looked rather out of place, I think.
Although I have bindings to do, I started another quilt instead. I've had it cut out for awhile. I made the first block last night to test the process.
It's paper pieced (I copied the pattern onto newsprint - so much easier to work with!), so I always have to retrain myself on how to do the Judy Neimeyer method. I did OK, with just a bit of a goof on that rightmost dark piece, but it's in the seam allowance so it will be forgiven.
I also had to test that light purple piece of fabric. It's almost like metallic tissue and I was worried it might melt. But it was made for quilters, and it worked just fine. I knocked the iron temperature down a hair "just in case".
Thank you, quilting fairies, for batiks! It's really hard to tell if you've reversed a piece. Which of course I did. It will be forgiven in the overall quilt.
That's yesterday's progress. Thanks for stopping by.
