I wish I could tell you this was a string quilt
but it is made from carefully cut curves.
The maker, Agnes Ryckman, made it with her mother
and her daughter machine quilted it.
I've been wondering if bias cut strips would also work
I saw this quilt at some local shows in the last few weeks.
I took this picture of a string quilt with a light centre
just to show you how one simple element can unify the whole quilt.
Here's the piano key border with the attached explanation.

Meanwhile, I got blocks in the mail from Cheryl, Paulette, and Carol.
Thanks to all of you, and thanks to Carol for the extra fabric she tucked into the envelope.
I made two blocks this morning, so I think my count must be close to 60 now.
Any more blocks in the mail right now?
I'm hoping to get it together before we wrap things up
at the String Thing Along blog at the end of June.
Thanks to all of you for playing along with me.
I've had fun!
Note: We don't have to wrap things up permanently in June,
but we started with a deadline, and I'm willing to honor it.
But we can continue, maybe with a short summer break,
if my blog authors and followers want to do that.
Just let me know.
