I think it's now safe to post photos of the full quilt; I've noticed my recipient lurking in here over the last week!
It's foundation-pieced Radiant New York Beauty blocks, with flowers and butterflires appliqued broderie-perse style.
I've never made such a small quilt before, and enjoyed the experience once I got over the challenge of fitting a design into such a small space. I hadn't fully realised just how small 20" was until I started!
I had fun quilting the 'hidden' symbols into the corners (blogged here):
TL: a Christmas tree, because summer in Australia means Christmas
BL: the South Australian floral emblem; the Sturt desert pea
BR: a snowflake, because the quilt was made in our winter
TR: the recipients' state' floral emblem
