    This was fun to make with a collection of unrelated floral fabrics. I really like a piano key border but sometimes don't want to put another border after it. What I do now is stay stitch around the outside of the piano keys before I apply the border to the body of the quilt and that way, I don't have to deal with the whole quilt top when stay stitching.

    I am doing one very similar for a friends wedding present but instead of florals I'm using all blue fabrics.

    I love the effect of bordering all the prints with white. That way they each stand out and still all go together. And thanks for the tip about the staystitching.

    This looks really great. May have to try it. Would be a great use of some of my scraps....and florals are something I tend to favour.

    That is so cool! I bet it would look good with black in place of the white too.
