Name That Tune Quilt for a Guild Challenge

OK, our guild is doing a challenge next month. Make a quilt which will be recognized as a title to a song. Wanna guess what song my quilt is named for?

It was composed in 1946 and first sung by Nat King Cole.

A close-up. I just did wavy lines in the pieced piano key border. Then I tried a new freemotion that I heard about on Machine Quilter's Resource. I will find out who designed it and update this post. The stitchout is called 3's and E's. Cool, Huh. I used Quilter's Dream cotton batting and PermaCore in Coronado color. Binding will be either blue of red.

My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
