    Does anyone have or has anyone seen a border pattern that looks like an actual piano keyboard? I am going to be making a musical quilt and would love that as a border. I can draft my own, but thought I would see if anyone else had one first.

    I can find lots of patterns by googling of borders that are called "piano keys" but not real ones.

    Thanks!

    there is fabric on the market which has piano keys on it....row after row...if you want to use that instead of cutting and resewing all those small pieces.

    Favorite Fabrics might know, send her a PM.

    It would be so much easier to use preprinted fabric for this. You could then quilt on the lines to separate the keys.

    We would love to see this quilt in the making! :thumbup:
