The Ice Cream Quilt

I know, it's a strange name for a quilt.  Especially since there isn't any pictures of ice cream on the fabric! When I finished the quilt top, I took it next door to show my neighbor.  She told her husband to come look at it, and he named it the ice cream quilt.  Said the colors made him think of Neapolitan Ice Cream.  What do you think?

This is my first quilt I did on my own without a pattern.  Not too bad for a first try. Don't look too closely, there are a few mistakes.

The colors, I think, go well together.  It seemed to come together nicely.  So I guess it does make a person think of Neapolitan Ice Cream. 

Maybe I can write up some simple instructions on how I did this.  I just drew it up on notebook paper and went to work.  What do you think? Oh, and I would have rotated the picture if I could have figured out how to!!!
