Using my new reading glasses and best Picassa forensic tools, it may say: "Lois Sayles-Woods" on the label. Very nice job!
(Let me know of you have more info about the maker. Thanks.)

The members of Goldfield's Quilters who participated are: Margaret, Rachel, Brenda, Kay, Chris, Faye, Lorraine, Pattie, and Alison.
Margaret made the quilt shown at the top using 1800's reproduction fabrics, her favorite. Pattie made the quilt above, putting some big flowers right in the middle. Great idea.

To make the "piano key" border, cut a pile of strips 1" x 4+" long. I cut them about 4 1/2" long as I'm making the quilt, and keep them in a pile for the border. Sew them in a long row. Press.
- When all your blocks are sewn together, make an inner border using 1" strips. I chose red because it is neither dark nor light, and I like it.
- Now attach your piano key strips to fit along the right and left sides of the quilt. Then attach piano key lengths to the top and bottom of your quilt top.
- Finally, add another 1" border.
The quilt shown in the first photo was machine quilted with parallel horizontal wavy lines. That is my "specialty." I just try to keep it simple so I don't ruin my quilt tops! I'm sure you'll blow me away with awesome quilting on your quilts. I can't wait to see them and put the photos in an up-coming Exhibit at http://www.onlinequiltmuseum.com/.
Please email your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org by Sept 1. Thanks! (Include your name the way you want it listed, where you're from, and the name of your quilt.)
So, did you think this quilt was easy? Was it fun? Is it on your "To Make" list?

Okay, here we go. Each block is made from one 6" square and one 1" strip (about 32" long).

There are already over 1,200 members! Join us, this will be fun. This quilt block looks like it might be aggravating to make, but it's really easy. No triangles to cut. You'll like this!
The photo above just shows a layout of some of my first blocks. The whole quilt below shows the border.
I designed this quilt. Another version of it appeared in the May/June issue of Quiltmaker magazine. This time I'm making it in solids. I think it would also look great made from scraps.
