I used Paint Box fabrics by Laundry Basket Quilts for Moda, both the batiks and regular prints. I finished all the 9 patches last weekend, but didn't have fabric for the setting squares or triangles. The charm packs did not have enough light fabrics to use for that. Seeing it on my design wall, I was anxious to get it finished, so I started pulling some tan backgrounds from my various Jo Morton collections and I like how they worked with the Paint Box prints. I think I will leave it square like this, without adding a border. Edited to add: I will end up adding borders to this because I'm gifting it to my Mom and she needs something a little larger. I just have to wait for the Paint Box yardage to show up in stores!
