Shoo Fly Lap Quilt

I received the registration number for my little quilt for the Priority Hope challenge. It's now packed up, waiting to go to the post office :- )

While I was waiting for the registration number I sewed up those extra Shoo Fly blocks to make the Shoo Fly UFO big enough to be used as a lap quilt by a small woman. I had an idea about how I would incorporate them into a border for the quilt... unfortunately, the border fabrics I had chosen didn't work out the way I thought they would. So what else is new?! I dug around in my stash and came up with other options. This is what I ended up with:

I'm not thrilled with the fact that the new outer border sort of fades away but I figure the part that MIL originally saw and enjoyed will be the part that shows up on her lap anyhow. I found a beautiful dark red print to use for the binding, and I think that pulls everything back together into a cohesive whole.
(You may be able to click on the picture above to see it in greater detail.
The one below probably won't work.)

This stripe that I used in the outer border turned out to be a blessing in disguise. I found I had a co-ordinating print in a large enough piece to use for the back!

Actually that border doesn't fade away - it's great. Gotta love these old quilt patterns with names like "shoo-fly" and "churn-dash" etc.

I love that soft border. It's beautiful fabric and it really coordinates nicely with the blocks. Lovely job!

What a great quilt. I like how the outside border fades away, it adds charm to the quilt.

This turned out VERY well... perfect for a cozy, comforting lap quilt. And how grand that the front coordinated with what you will use for the back!
