Sin Of Pride (part 1)

So, this is the story about how I have a few things to share, a.k.a., "sin of pride". These pictures are of a quilt I made last year for a friend's new sweet baby, Nico. It's one of the first "real" quilts I've made; It's the first time I used batting & followed a pattern! I'm not keen on following directions & have issues with finishing projects, so this was an excellent exercise in patience & determination! (as are the 2 others I've finished/started)

The layers involved:

Detail of the fabrics used for the quilt top. It's hard to tell from this pic, but the brown is supposed to replicate coffee swirling, but to me, it looks like woodgrain:

More to come......N.
