    A piano key border is simply strips sewn together and then cut into whatever size you want. For example, if you sew 2 strips that are 2.5" wide and the WOF (width of fabric), then sub cut those into 4.5", you can then sew those blocks together and you would have alternating stripes of those two colors, and your finished border would be 4 inches wide. I like to sew a variety of pairs to get in more fabrics. This is also a great way to use up short scraps.

    You could just as easily sub-cut your strips 6", 8 inches, whatever.

    Thanks for that. Sounds just the thing to finish off my rail fence quilt.

    I love this block. I just need to figure out how to make it turn out 12" finished. Would be great for a QOV.

    If you use a 15" unfinished 4 patch, it comes out 13" unf. and can cut down to 12 1/2 unf.
