The Harpsichord Quilt has made its way to the top of the list to be worked on. I got a start by adding another block to the group of finished ones last night. Each side of the octagons are .75″. As the seams are so short, the block takes very little time to piece.
They take seconds to press.
My quilt is inspired by both the original Lucy Boston patchwork and the amazing harpsichords we saw, particularly the incredible decorative artwork that is on them. I wanted a brocade-type effect for the outer edge octagons, but didn’t want the darkness of the “right” side of the fabric, so decided I’m using the wrong side of that fabric.
As soon as I saw the Patchworks of Lucy Boston book, I fell in love with the Keyboard Patchwork. So when the .75-inch octagon Inklingo collection came out with the shapes for it, I had to get started on it. While they have sat for ages, it’s a project I want to get finished sooner rather than later.
This is another quilt in a box project. The glassine envelopes contain everything I need, including the threads I use when piecing these blocks.
