The quilt is beautiful! Not too sure about the skinny piano keys but it could work. Sew a few of the blue strips together - maybe 6 or so from your scraps - and just hold them up there to see how it will look. It might give you an idea of whether you want to continue with it. I think it would just look like a wide striped border all around and be fine.

Merry Christmas!!!!

Experimented a bit last night with strips varying in width. I like how it looks on its own, but haven't decided if I'm going to continue with it or not. Maybe it will grow on me.

Random.org is my go to for giveaways. So easy! Also, YAY for your winner!

I will take full responsibility for piano keys. It's just possible that had something to do with my PPV hanging on the design wall when we were discussing...

That is a LOT of milestone birthdays. We need a sew retreat...

What did you say you were using for binding? I'm looking at the top and thinking of blue piano keys and my brain is adding brown binding as a stop.

Jan's is going to either be the wine quilt with an additional border to make it bigger, or it will be my original PPV. Jay's birthday isn't until June or July of 2018, so I don't even need to think about his this year, just keep it on the radar, thank goodness. I would eventually like to get one to both nephews and my other niece, too, but that can wait. So really once Jan's is done that's probably it besides my own projects and Linus. One thing you can count on is something unexpected coming up, like another great-niece or great-nephew, you never know!

I planned to use the same dark brown to bind that is the first narrow border. I have already tested it next to the blues and I think it will work just fine. I could also use the remainder of the grey background fabric from the main part of the quilt as binding, that would go well, too. I should have plenty left. The back is a tonal grey flannel blender. Light grey thread for quilting.

Sew retreat... right now I am making no travel plans and buying no fabric, you know why. :( I think at the very least a bff weekend is in order, however, hopefully during 1st quarter.

Sew retreat... we will figure something out. I was actually looking up retreat centers this morning over my coffee, lol. Let's tentatively shoot for summer. Maybe June. NOT FATHERS DAY, lol. My mission is to get that kid a job for summer. So she can look after kitties and I can go wherever I want. :)

Definitely not Father's Day. I'm open to whatever. I've already cleared it with Eli. We're going to do a mini-vacation in April and I don't think we have summer travel plans at all
