The Piano Quilt

A few weeks ago now my DD started piano lessons. She’s been so excited and enjoying it so much it’s lovely to see.  I’ve been enjoying sitting and listening to her lesson each week, it’s nice to stop and sit quietly for half an hour in the midst of my busy week.


And so the beginning of a new quilt was born. Something that was portable, hand pieced yet not too complex.  At the recent AQC I purchased these two fat quarter bundles, a mix of Kaffe Fasset, Phillip Jacobs and Brandon Mably.


So inspired by this piece and my 60 degree ruler I set about cutting and ruling enough pieces to get started.  I’m still not exactly sure how it will all come together but I’m enjoying watching it evolve.


I must get online and buy some yardage of a few of these prints to finish it off one day…  I can piece 2 or three triangles a lesson, so at this rate she might be a concert pianist by the time it’s finished!

Blessings for your portable projects :)
