That's a lot of strips! Love the quilt and colors! I recently did the sew a long on Painted Quilt blog and she gave such a great tip on sewing strips so that they don't bow or have to resquared all the time. You sew the first two strips like usual, then you sew the next strip from the other direction, and so forth. You don't sew them all in the same direction. Do you do that? I never did and always struggled with waves and have to resquare. I didn't have to but one time with this method. Can't wait to see this one! I love your work and blog!


The piano key border will be a lovely 'frame' for your quilt! I've used the method described by Laura above & it makes a difference! Good tip! Happy sewing--hope you get to do lots today!

Tracey Holzer
