    Orange quilt top finished

    I've got this one ready to quilt. The picture shows part of the border not pinned on. I usually pin my quilt tops to my curtain and change them from day to day until I like what I see. haha The original pattern was from Pinterest and didn't have the "piano key" border. I just wanted to use my scraps.

    I'm glad that I am not the only one who pins on the curtain. I have a design board which is always full. I find the quilt so cheerful. Did you say you bought the piano keys?

    Your quilt is very pretty. I have never used curtains like that, what a good idea! I really like your piano keys on the border too.

    Very bright and pretty quilt. I think the piano key border looks great. In fact, I am putting on a piano key border on my granddaughter's quilt. I think it really adds a finish and I can use up the scraps that I made the quilt with.

    What a cheery quilt! So bright and sunshiny. Wouldn't that be great to have on a dreary, rainy day! Great job.

    It's very pretty and cheerful. I am working on a quilt with that type of pattern.

    I just used my scraps to make the border. They aren't all the same size either. I used paper I bought from WalMart that is used in adding machines. I bought a couple of rolls and sometimes just do my scrap sewing on them. I iron them, then sit and tear the paper off when I'm not in a concentrated sewing mood.
