OK technically it's not my first quilt, I've a couple of practice ones before making this lap quilt but anyhoo. I loved making it. The instructions called for making it by hand but there was no way I was going to do that, I made it entirely with my sewing machine, even the binding. Anyway, cutting all those triangles was tedious, as was making the different rows but in the end, I love the result. I have more details on my process here, just scroll past the part in French.  I slowly building a stash of FQs and fabrics by the half meter yard or full meter, for future quilts, I already have plans for quilt for my niece, after I've done a couple of other projects. Thanks for looking.

Very nice, I like the colours, the white looks great with the neutrals.

I've been thinking about making this quilt for awhile, and seeing this just makes me want to do it even more now.  I think the neutral browns look great with the white, and all the colors are really balanced well - that's something I feel like I always struggle with.  Great job!

That is just LOVELY.  I have to say, I've never like this pattern very much... yours is the first I've really been struck by!  It's amazing how much difference the right colour palette can make.  Great job!

Thank you all  Grin About the coulour scheme, it helps that I picked fabrics from the same collection, this is what has helped the cohesive look. I love it. My next quilt will be so different, it will be a baby quilt in pinks and greens.
