Noah's Quilt, Done!

Finished my Bento Box quilt this morning!
As you can see from the link here, I kinda sorta modified it a little - I tried the colors all mixed up and it looked too unfocused to me with my very limited black-white-royal palette. So now it's more baby-stimulating graphic-y.

I'm really am digging on the bright red binding and soft blue starry back to contrast with the bold front. The colors also are reminiscent of baby Noah's Marine papa. My first quilt with strip-piecing and from a pattern, yay! I didn't have a good idea for a quilt label, so I just embroidered the info in a back corner.

Very pretty! It makes me a bit dizzy at first glance though. :)

This is fabulous Paula, way to go! I like your choice to keep the colors together too. I love seeing different takes on this fun pattern. I'm picturing a little drooling baby grabbing at the different squares with cute little baby hands.
