friday night sew in-finished quilt top

I finished the top!  Yesterday, my husband and I went to Joanne’s and found this fabric. The bonus of having a husband who is an artist is getting out-of-the-box color advice. I knew I would be using orange in this quilt, but I never would have picked this peach color.  I think I would have used a rustier color, but  I love the way the peach makes the quilt glow. I had the intention of adding a frame of pieced squares, but I just liked the fabric I bought so much I went with it.  I was able to get the top completely sewn last night.  Hopefully, today or tomorrow I will get the quilt basted.  I think I am on track to have it done for February, my second ufo done for 2011.
