Inspired by Craftyfolk - NEW Team Challenge

I'm a member of a lovely supportive team on Etsy, Craftyfolk.

One team member suggested that we interpret, using our own particular media, an item from a team member's shop.  This lovely item from WhimsyWoo Designs was chosen http://www.etsy.com/listing/84986626/ipad-sleeve-story-fruity.  A beautifully made item in a gorgeous fabric.

I have been wanting to make a new range of items for a while and, coincidentally, have been thinking about patchwork and quilts, so this was the perfect catalyst for this major procrastinator to get going. A bit like being at art school and being asked to do a transcription of a painting.

It's still drying at the moment and waiting to be lined, but I thought I would blog about it anyway.  Today I received a delivery of very muted coloured wools from World of Wool but I am now inspired to make some bright pieces so will have to order some more.......
