    the blue borders were scraps of strips that i pieced to make fit.. and the piano keys in between the blues, were 2.5-3 inches of scrap strips i sewed on register receipt tape over the years..

    Im happy to say i made a dent in my wonky strip stash piles.. Whoo Hoo !!

    you did a great job! It is such a bright homey quilt. As our mothers mothers did use everything you possibly can you did a wonderful job and created a useful pretty quilt.
