Blogger's Quilt Festival - My Mini!!

It is that time of the year to show off your favourite makes to the lovely Amy who holds the Bloggers Quilt Market Festival to coincide with Quilt Market.  
Earlier in the year I signed up for the UK Mini Swap, was given a partner and then I started to worry. My partner was a modern loving lady and although I love a fresh modern quilt, I wasn't sure I could produce one! I'm (was) a bit of a whole fabric range, traditional quilt maker!
So, setting my brain to overdrive, wasting hours on Pinterest and arguing with Touch Draw I produced this..................
It measures 19"x19" and was inspired by the Cotton + Steel pattern Good Fortune by Rashida Coleman Hale. But the block were way too big, so I down scaled it on Touch Draw.
I used a massive range of fabrics, mostly from my scraps and a charm pack from Karen Lewis to create it.
I sent it off to the lovely Anna Marie back in April. I can honestly say I didn't want to part with it, but thankfully she loved it...........or I would have asked for it back!!
