A new quilt for myself

A few weeks ago I showed a friend the lovely McKenna Ryan fabrics in the shop and I just couldn't get them out of my mind. I've always loved the beautiful soft blends of color that McKenna designs and I finally succumbed to the temptation to use them in a quilt. I have decided on large blocks to show the fabrics to advantage and am making a king size quilt broken down into quilt as you go sections for easier quilting.  It will have appliqued flowers scattered all over in a random manner. this quilt and the  labyrinth quilt are both at the forefront of my mind at the moment so it will be interesting to see which gets finished first. Of course they are both competing with other quilts I am working on for patterns. Life is always full and interesting with so many quilts to make isn't it.
Regards Elizabeth.
