Quilt for new craftshop

My friends Riana and Jennifer are opening a new craftshop in Dubai next week. The shop will include a big workshop area where they will present quilt- and other craft classes. As part of all their preparations they asked me to piece a quilt top for the workshop.

They presented me with a stack of fabric and a pattern.

I have made quite a few quilts in my life but this was the first time I actually worked from a pattern.
It is made up of 2 different types of blocks in 3 different colour combinations.
The only freedom of choice I had was in how I will combine the 6 different prints into a 9-patch block

I just had to do the top. Someone else will do the actual quilting and finishing.

The shop opens this weekend. Can't wait...
