Yay! The borders are all on and I had a piece of pink about 2x6 left over. I had to do some pretty fancy piecing to get enough for all four sides. Now I am going to town to try to get something for the backing. I don't think I have enough fabric left to do a pieced backing as I had planned. The piano keys took up quite a lot of fabric.
The quilt ends up being 80 x 104 which is a double size I think. Larger than I had planned but I like it. Now the quilting is the big challeng left!

The piano key border might have sucked up a lot of fabric, but it was soooo worth it. Looks great.

I really like all the pink, and the piano key border works great with the middle!
