Hello Everyone,

So this is it... the very LAST month!  Thank you for all who have participated and for those that haven't the links to ALL the tutorials are available FOREVER on my right side bar... yep... right over there...

Now to what you have been waiting for, my vision for the setting.

Here is a little sneak peek.

Here is what you will need to complete the top:

36 ~ 2.25" X 8.5" for sashing between blocks

24 ~ 2.25" X 2.25" squares for cornerstones between sashing

4 ~ 10 7/8" X 10 7/8" squares cut in half once on the diagonal for the setting triangles

2 ~ 9" X 9" squares cut in half on the diagonal once for the setting corners

2 ~ 2.5" X 44.25" strips for inner border (matches gray background)

2 ~ 2.5" X 46.5" strips for inner border (matches gray background)

96 ~ 2.5" X 6.5" rectangles for the piano keys borders

4 ~ 6.5" squares for border corners

2.5" X 6.5" rectangles for piano keys

Piano keys arranged in the color order that you would like.  I used the same fabrics that had been used in all the blocks for each month. 

Setting and corner squares need to be cut on the diagonal once.

Sashing strips.

Cornerstones for sashing.

Inner border.

Using the layout above you will layout your blocks in the format you would like.  Then place your sashing strips in between each block.  Place your cornerstones at the end of each sash.  I used two colors for my cornerstones.  

Then place your setting triangles and corners in and begin to sew the blocks, sashing, cornerstones and setting triangles together in rows, pressing as you go until the body of the quilt is complete.

Now you will add your inner border strips.  I used the same color as my background gray.  Add the sides first then the top and bottom.

Now layout your rectangles and four squares for your piano keys borders.  Sew the rectangles together to form your borders and then apply them to the body of the quilt.  You may have to ease in a little bit of fabric, but I mean a very little, when you apply the border to the body of the quilt.  

Once these are on you now can layer, quilt as desired and then bind.  Voila your quilt is done!!

Please don't forget to post your completed tops in the Flickr group.  I can't wait to see them.

Until Next Time...
