    This applique block is called " Ka-Bloom ". It is one of 9 blocks that are in the "In full bloom" Art Quilt by Mckenna Ryan. I have only one of the blocks left to make. But this was by far the most challenging one to complete. It is Block one but I decided to leave it till nearly last so I could get some more experience.

    I love Ryan Mckenna's designs. Thinking about getting the patterns for Chrissy Down Under.

    Looks beautiful Aussie. I had wondered how you were going with this. I confess I haven't done any more of mine - too busy with other projects at the moment.

    Can't wait to see the completed quilt. Are you going to post the other blocks in the meantime?

    Job well done. The other women in this posting are right when they say it looks like a painting.

    That is just gorgeous! And so is your precious daughter!
    I noticed how green everything looks. Our landscape is awful with no rain and a long, hot hot hot summer!
    Can't wait to see your other blocks! :D

    Those MR quilts are so intimidating to me. But I sure love to see them when they are finished by such talented people as you. Great job and I echo everyone's opinion that it is almost as beautiful as your daughter. Thanks for showing off both beauties. Let us see the completed quilt when you are finished.
