ALYOF September Goal: Neutral Log Cabin Quilt

I made this neutral value log cabin quilt earlier this year, and now it's time to get it quilted and off my WIP list!

The quilt is big enough to cover a queen mattress now, but it doesn't drape very much. I've decided to add a piano key border and a narrow sashing on either side of that.

I've got all the piano key pieces paired up, and I'm one-third of the way through piecing them into 4-strip sets.

This quilt is from Judy Martin's book, Log Cabin Quilt Book called Summer Lake. My fabrics have so little difference between the light and dark values, I think I need a narrow sashing to help define the borders. I don't know which fabric I'll use for sashing yet, but I've got a day of sewing piano keys to think of something :)

My goal for September is to have this quilt finished and ready for gifting! Linking up with Shanna's goal setting party at Fibre of All Sorts.
