I looked at my secret partner's inspiration mosaic, had a think, and came up with this design.

I have lots of thoughts about whether the grey cross hatch was the right choice, but decided to stick with it and hope that my eventual quilting of the mini will make it work in my vision.
I also decided to take the pattern a little further and expanded on it.
I kind of like the way it looks like a cog. There has been one more design adjustment that I have made on the fly, as I started piecing these little bits of fabric together.
Not sure if you can tell where it is in the above photo. This is as far as I got this weekend. I may have miscounted the size this block and it will be (slightly) over size. I am hoping that this will be over looked in the belief that it was the right decision in regards to my pattern.
So, somewhere in that 1,000+ people is my partner and I am hoping she is liking this. Because if she doesn't I will have to start from scratch. At least I haven't left all this to the last minute for a change.
