Borders On...

How happy and lovely does this look... I'm so happy with how my pinwheel top turned out..
I do love the piano keys border...this is the first time I have ever done a border like this, and I think it won't be the last....thank you dear patchwork friends..(you know who you are).. for suggesting it and giving me the inspiration...
I was going to mitre the corners on the border, but decided to add little pinwheels instead...
OK next job now is to sandwich, pin and quilt the top.....hmm I think this one will be for me!...♥

Until next time....have a nice day....♥
