My first machine pieced quilt......

When I was in Holland some weeks ago i took a private class to learn cutting fabric and piecing it by my sewingmachine. I learned a lot of things. And  what was most important I lost my fear for starting a machine pieced quilt.
In Quiltmania number 46  I found this one, so gorgeous. And I bought months ago a lot of beautiful Japanese fabric on Etsy, also Japanese kimono silk here and here.For the small squares I used kimono silk fabric.
When I made this picture I only had 5 blocks, now there are 13 blocks ready.

And this is the picture in the Quiltmania, isn't it lovely?
