The original quilter tried, she really did. The pattern is interesting, the fabric is high quality, the colors are beautiful. But, she struggled with the piecing and assembly and eventually gave up.
Sparkle Jane saw potential. She fixed what she could of the piecing, while honoring the effort of the original maker. And assembled the top.
There was plenty of fabric, so she added a triple border–a narrow inner border, a lovely piano key center, and a wider outer border.
Extra fabric was used to make more “piano key” style pieces to stretch the back.
I am certain the original maker would be pleased with the results. YAY for the quilt rescuer!
