A Quilt

I made a quilt for my nephew's birthday, which was over two months ago now. I finally completed it yesterday. I started hoarding fabrics for it before he was born. I had some grand crazy plan for an abstract quilt with a lot of applique work. Eventually, I came to my senses and decided that quilt was never going to get made. A lot of the fabrics I bought to reflect the many places his parent have traveled to and lived: New York, Paris, Bali, Japan, etc. I decided to use some of them in a quilt top using a technique for a Bargello quilt I learned in this book. I did one of these one before for my husband years ago when we were in college. Without further ado here are some pictures of it in progress:
