My first quilt!

Ok so it's about time I shared my quilts! My mum's skill inspired me to make a start on some of my own. We occasionally go to http://www.fabricguild.co.uk/ to get some fabrics at warehouse prices. I was lucky enough to pick up a batik jelly roll by Fabric Freedom for just £18. I loved the patterns, and I wanted to show the continuity of the patterns within the quilt, so that inspired the pattern for this quilt, which I designed myself:

I recently had a look on the fabric freedom website and completely by coincidence discovered that they had done a very similar pattern with the exact same jelly roll!

However, they haven't matched the fabrics up to get the continuity, and I have to say I prefer mine. Is that bad?! Let me know what you think!
