Modern Quilt anyone?

I'm still sewing but only in straight lines :) Here's where I am with the first quilt top I've ever pieced. (except for the other one I found in my stash, which I will get around to, once I'm over my fear of doing the actual quilting).  The tips look great in the photo but triangles are not for the fainthearted. I thought a large quilt block would be good for a beginner, but thinking now a jelly roll might have been a better choice.  Live and learn!


I want to add more to it, and have all sorts of ideas running around in my head, like origami swans, or mini versions of the motif in the white areas, or I can just add visual interest in the quilting pattern.
This is my practice quilt after all, so may just keep it simple, there are just so many possibilities.

Next up after this, in my continuing search for nice shirt patterns.

No honestly I can't believe it's all sewn together. It's all your fault lol. Thank you, I really ended up with something I like.
