    Oh, how pretty! Piano keys for border, maybe? Do it like the REAL piano keys, it would look great on a b&w quilt.

    Funny you should say piano keys, the back will be music notes.

    Ok, when I saw black and white bargello, I thought... that won't work... but its beautiful. You did a great job. I think I'd go with a solid black border to frame it though.

    Absolutely stunning...I would agree with the solid black border. You did a great job on the top.

    You need a narrow separator and then the black and white piano keys would be really cool. You could use the music note fabric from the backing for cornerstones in the border.

    The piano keys is a great idea, but I think I would like the look of the solid black better

    If 'snazzy' is a word, that's what I call it. I love it.

    I'd put a black zinger and then one of the fabrics you used in the strips. It's beautiful BTW!!!

    Gorgeous!! am trying to get up the nerve to try one of those. I also think a solid black border would just set the whole quilt off. Great job love it.

    Stunning!! I love the idea of piano keys, but think it might be alittle too much. A nice, (unique) solid black border would frame the spectacular work you did. :-)

    That's what I was thinking, too.

    Maybe a narrow red border and then do the final one in piano keys.
