Shoo Fly quilt top

I'm really happy, I finally decided where I was going with this quilt. I used a dark brown print from my stash for the sashes. And I added one of my favorite patterns--a string border--on the top and bottom. I'm washing a bit of flannel that I had hanging around to use for the backing. I have a batt on hand, too. Well, I owe the Liberated Shoo Fly pattern to Gwen Marston's book. So I'm eagerly awaiting the release of her new book "Liberated Quiltmaking II" in a couple of weeks. You can bet that I'm going to get my order in early!

I love it. There is nothing more lively than a wonky quilt. The dark sashing really sets it off and I love the piano key borders on the ends.

Merry Christmas Roz...I like the shoo fly quilt. It looks like I could use some of my stash for a project like this.
I do have a couple of quilt tops to finish for the new year though...
But a great project.
Am off for the holidays.
