Doll Quilt Swap 11

I signed up for the Doll Quilt Swap 11 lottery on Flickr about a month ago.  I was hoping I would get selected, but wasn't sure if I would since it was my first time signing up.  I've been following the group for a little while, admiring the work of so many of the women and their talent.

I was selected to participate and was given a partner that seemed to like a lot of oranges, blues and greens.  The problem for me? Orange is my least favorite color and I only had one orange fabric in my stash.
After digging through my stash, I decided on the above fabrics.  My partner also seemed to like a lot of straight, clean lines, so I decided to do a mini bento box quilt.

Here's what I've come up with so far.  The bottom left three blocks are out of place, but I'll fix that before I sew it together.  I still need to make a few more before I piece the top.  Right now it will measure at 10" x 10".  I'll probably make it 10" x 15" or 15" x 15".  The requirement is that the quilt must be at least 9" x 9" to 18" x 18" or anywhere in between.
I really hope my partner likes it.  She didn't comment on my first post showing the fabric choices.  I'm just going to move forward hoping that she just missed it and really does like it.
