This quilt was made as a thank-you gift for Ann, who is the retiring choir director at church. Ann was choir director for 15 years. Actually, the first time I attended this church, 9 years ago, the choir director was retiring (yes, there WAS a quilt to sign) and Ann was taking over (she did her 15 years in 2 stints), so having a different choir director will be a whole new experience for me (but I don't think it will make me sing any better--I'll stick to quilting--your ears will be safer, LOL).
So...the borders needed piano keys.
These are some of the warmest music fabrics I've seen, not the usual black and stark white which is a cool combination.
I still love the tessellations.
The congregation of the church got to sign the back of the quilt with their well-wishes.
And here's a picture of half of the banners, so you can see the layout similarities.
