Borgasmord With Que Sera Sera Piano Key Border?

"Borgasmord" I think that many times about things that are random and varied and that I like, and people always look at me like I'm crazy (When I say it out loud).  Do any of you remember Morris and the Underwood ham commercial?  When I was making this I thought of it and thought that may just be the name of this quilt (my scrappy Star Struck).  I liked the scrappy border on this quilt and thought what if I did a Jelly Roll Race type start with my 2 1/2 inch scraps and then at some point stop (I did 8) and cut them into sections to use for a piano key border.  I was afraid when I was gathering scraps that I wouldn't have enough, but I think I have enough for a coin strip down the back, to keep me knowing up and down when I make the bed.  Genius, or at least I hope so, lol.  Now that I have a method and a name, do I have a copyright, another joke.
(As you can see, if I don't have the TV on I have too much time to think my weird thoughts)

As I was cutting and sewing I also found myself singing Que Sera, Sera, do any of you remember that song with the beautiful Doris Day?  Thus, the second part of my possible title, do you think it's too much and I should just stick with Borgasmord?

It made a nice tidy little stack if I do say so.  Next question, will the finished quilt be a scrappy delight or a mish-mash nightmare.  The suspense is part of the quilting fun.

Found myself laughing and shaking my head at your opening paragraph.

Great border technique...

but what caught my eye the most: the upper left corner of your first picture. The quilt on the bed: yummy. And the quilts hanging so orderly from the quilt rack: lovely!

I am laughing so hard right now and singing out loud.....poor dogs! Thanks for starting my day off with laughter.
I think your idea is genius and I am going to copy you on every quilt back from now on! Although I do have 1 that I did that on but don't think that was the reason.
Scrappy Delight........no question about it!
