While I'm Waiting on Thread, Another Top Finished

I went back and forth with a thread delima on
my DS's quilt.  I have a med-gray but it was an
emergency-purchase thread to finish a previous project.
If ever a quilt is going to get a lot of wear and tear, it
will be this one so I'm just not comfortable using a generic
thread (I'm not really ever so why am I keeping it!?!?)
so I gave in and placed an order.  

While waiting on the thread to show up, I pulled out my
other current project, the 30's sampler/Irish chain quilt.


I decided to do the piano key border
(as a reader suggested--thank you)
to use up all of my little scrappy pieces.


And just like that, another quilt top done; in fact,
 the backing is pieced and it's completely ready to
load up...just as soon as DS's rolls off.

Here we are creeping up on August and I'm wondering:
 do I try to squeeze in that Dresden within the next
couple weeks before the overwhelming urge to
create some autumn in the sewing room hits?
Hmmm...

Happy quilting!

Cute quilt top. The piano key border works well with those blocks.
