    Okay, here is the finished top. Thanks to all of you who gave me suggestions for the borders. I had never done a piano key border before but it seems to fit this quilt perfectly! I think I had nine or ten uniform tops my DD in Ohio had worn.This quilt was an exercise in patience for me. I learned why not to sew when you don't feel good. I used my seam ripper more on this then any other quilt I've made! But I am very happy with the end result. This is a surprise birthday present for my DD. I wish I could be there to see her face when she sees it!! What do you think?

    I have a whole storage bin full of scrubs that I no longer need. Maybe I'll make a quilt from them. I saw several of my own in your quilt. You ladies just keep giving me way too many ideas of quilts to make. I'll have to live to be 150 to even make a small dent in the list.
