Four Seasons Quilt Swap - Spring

Here's the miniature quilt I made for the Four Seasons Quilt Swap spring round. I tried out lots of new techniques here, as well as more free motion quilting. Practice makes perfect they say - if only I had a lot more time to practise! I made it for the Quilting Pirate in the US and she said she loved it - I made it in her favourite colours, so that was a good start!
