Purple MC Challenge Quilt

Is QUILTED - not bound, but who cares??? It is quilted!! And I think it turned out okay.
I did a feather all around the piano Key borders. I kind of did it free hand without marking before hand - just wanted to see if I could do it. And I think I did. However I would not take that chance on a quilt that I had decided to enter in a fair or something - that might have been nerve wracking. As it was, I didn't really care if the feathers matched up or not.

One of the smaller inner borders.
The outside border. I chalked it as I went and you can still see the different lines that I drew - It was kind of fun, an experiment if you will.

The back - see in the long run it all turned out just fine, But I kind of like the security of marking things before I load them, so that I get the exact middle of the quilt, and the lines all set up first.
