Some Piecing MoJo

It's true, a finished flimsy from my sewing room. I started this when I had other projects on the go and I'm so glad I kept at it. I do not need another WIP in my sewing room.
About this top: It's approx 60 x 70. It was made with 2 charm packs of Fandango and the solid is Bella Solids by Moda. The striped stop border and outer border are also from Fandango. I purchased the Charms from ETC in Hood River while I was away at a quilt show in Stevenson, WA and the borders from FatQuarterShop. They packaged my fabric in a zip bag and for that I'm thankful. The envelop was torn open when it arrived, but my fabric was in perfect condition. I love stripes for stop borders. I was going to bind this with the striped fabric on the bias, but using the stripe on the straight grain is much better.
This was a great design to showcase all the fabric in this collection. It's outside of my normal fabric choices, but it's a gift for a beautiful young lady. I thought it was fresh and modern, a bit trendy, just like her.
Now to get it on my quilt machine and feather it!

It's lovely Sharon! How wonderful to have a flimsy ready for quilting!! Now who wouldn't love to have this quilt...I think your choices were good for a younger person!
I've laid down my paint brush for the day and am headed to the sewing machine to maybe finish sewing up a flimsy myself!!!

Oh yes....and I'm going to start the new mystery quilt Bonnie Hunter started today....clapping!

The younger women really like that style of fabric. Good choice for the design you used.

Very nice! The border fabric is really fantastic. I'm sure the recipient will love it.

Just caught your quilt. It's looking great. What is the border fabric? I like the little striped border against it too.
