On to the Borders from Fret Not Yourself

My quilt had too much background when the center was finished so I decided to add colorful borders.
By cutting both remaining white-on-black prints I made the inner border. Can you even tell there are two different prints?

Next I added the piano keys outer border. Being really tired of using the rotary tools by now, I used scissors to freehand cut 7" slices from only mediums.

2016 – A Year of New Inspirations for Me from Quilt Patterns from Seattle

This year I will be doing a mystery in April and October due to other commitments.

My first inspirations for the year come from Freddy Moran and Gwen Marston.

and fell in love with their ideas.
