First, I would like a make a piano key border using 12 - 2 and a half inch strips. My question is, what the most accurate methods of making the piano keys? My thought is to sew the 42-inch long strips all together and then cut the desired width strips from the joined pieces? I am guessing this would give me the straightest border than cutting the strips to the desired length and then sewing them all together. Your input would be greatly appreciated. Second, I would like to know what is your "go to" quilt book that you reference the most when you are piecing quilts. One of my guild members recently suggested Sharyn Craig's "Great Sets: 7 Roadmaps to Spectacular Quilts". She says she references it all the time, as it describes how to incorporate those different sized orphan quilt blocks into a finished quilt. The back of the book has all the math calculated out for you, so you do not have to be a math genius to put the blocks together. So I would like to know what one book you would buy if you could only have a one book library? Cagey
