What was I thinking?!!

'Twas the night before Christmas, and...

I'm finishing up a quilt top that I started this week? I had a TON of stuff to do; how'd I crank this out?!!

It's a little windy, as you can see...

Our charity sewing circle had been gifted a lot of fabric recently, as I've mentioned before. Part of the stash included some great ethnic prints. I had an idea in my head, kind of Beyond the Block style.

UPDATE: I'd gotten some questions about the book that inspired this, so I wanted to give you a picture of it. This really is the best price I've seen for this book:

There are elements of this that I really like. There are also elements that I will definitely do differently next time. Because there WILL be a next time. In fact, I'm thinking of creating a series, and naming it "Origins." This may become a "potato-chip quilt" kind of style for me (you know, once you do one, you can't stop). I'm thinking very seriously of donating this one, or keeping this on hand as a last-minute gift or donation. I've always wanted a reserve of quilts to use like that...

In this photo, it's been rotated 180 degrees. Hmm...

I'll keep trying... :)
