Just Me and My Peeps - A Finished Top

Get your sunglasses on because this one is bright! A perfect pick-me-up for dreary November, eh? Although November's been pretty nice here so far. The hubster worked late Thursday night and was out Friday night so that meant two quilting nights in a row -- woo hoo! Ooops, I mean bummer, he's out again?! ;)

The design that I sketched out in the summer originally had all horizontal strips of fabric with three or four horizontal brick sections interspersed throughout. However, when I saw this beautiful modern baby quilt at Bijou Lovely, I decided to try a strip of bricks vertically. I think the layout works. I find it very bold and bright. I'm curious if your eyes have a place to rest when you look at it?


Those pumpkins were my two year old's contribution to this photo shoot. :)



I'm hosting TGIFF! this Friday so be sure to come back to see the finishes and link up a finish of your own, if you have one. I think my finish will be that Christmas project I mentioned on Saturday or Just Me and My Peeps or Converging Stars. Oh, I don't know - so much fun stuff on the go and a lot can happen between now and then.

I think this one definitely fits in the modern category so I'm linking up to Sew Modern Monday!
