Flimsy Finish and (Another) New Start

I finished the I Spy (girl) quilt top this week. The different fabrics came from a swap, and I purchased the border fabric at Walmart for $4.97 yd. What a surprise to find the same exact fabric at Joanns for $7.99 yd!

I decided to make a high school graduation quilt and it must be finished by the end of May! I was not sure what colors the student likes--I have a large collection of black-on-white and white-on-black prints; the combination is timeless and the quilt won't look dated a few years from now. Here is the start...
I like the modern wonky look so far; I hope the grad likes it too!

I'm linking up with Susan and other Little Green Quilters at http://www.blackberrycreek.typepad.com/

First of all I like the pink quilt top and can see that you "fussy cut" a few cute squares.
Second, I love you black and white theme. I did a wonky quilt for a baby shower not long ago. I had to let go of the desire to center,,etc.
good luck!

hi Julie,
Love the I Spy quilt. I've never made one, but i can see that a little girl would just love that. And I like the wonky look on the grad quilt! You do a great job keeping busy with your UFOs!

I have a bunch of b&wh prints that need to be busted-maybe your quilt will inspire me!

Cute I Spy quilt top too.

What a happy I Spy quilt! Well done!

Your b&w quilt plan is excellent and methinks the grad will be so pleased with it. Good thinking!

Applause, applause!

Love the I Spy quilt. So happy. I like the black and white one to, btw, but I'm a pushover for lots of color.
