New Pattern: Random Samples: A Modern Quilt Design

I have just added my new Random Samples pattern to my website. The fabrics shown in the pictures are from the Artisan Spirit Shimmer collection (Ebony colorway) by Northcott. But of course you can use fabrics from your stash if you prefer a different colour scheme. The large quilt uses 9 different fat quarters plus background and the small quilt uses 9 fat eighths plus background.

This pattern is also available as an immediate download on my Craftsy site.
