Inspired by fashion

I couldn't resist joining in with the temptress Laura at Quokka Quilts and her amazingly cool competition!

There's so much choice on the Fat Quarter Shop website it's hard to know where to start, so instead I went to the source of all wonderfulness and inspiration; Vogue and came across some Missoni!

Missoni / Spring 2012 RTW

I had to adapt the colours so I created a slightly different palette but I love the fabric choices and the vibe the mosaic has. These fabrics suggest so much texture to me, a definite nod to Missoni :)

I had a lot of fun making my mosaic and spent FAR too long doing it!! I am loving it:
