     I was needing some bright, little girl friendly fabric for a quick birthday gift for early July so rather than make myself crazy pulling from my stash baskets I just used a fat eighth bundle of an old Riley Blake line called "Hoopla" that's been sitting on my shelf for YEARS!

     The quilt is for a cousin's daughter of my Son in Law.  My daughter requested churn dash blocks but with NO white background.  I LOVE using white as the background for quilts but when asked to forego it, I will use something else :)

I LOVE the way all of the fabrics go together, even though there are a few prints that are a little hard to see the actual block pattern after they're made up (ex. the light purple on the red wavy stripe)

I picked a purple and white print for the first border and then used all the leftover fabrics for a piano key border then the binding is the same purple and white.

The backing fabric is a white flannel multi colored springs that go perfect with the front.  
I think it's a Christmas print but I like it with this top.......

My quilter Sarah did an awesome job with a variegated purple thread !!!!

I have about a week or 10 days to get the binding tacked down and ready for little Mae's birthday......
