    I bought this McKenna Ryan (? Name) Fabric because I thought the worse thing to do with it would be to cut it up and use it in a bargello because it fades in out of value and different shades of color..The name if this line of fabric is called "Willow"....So when looking for a bargello pattern I looked thorugh my book called "Traditions with a twist" and found the pattern called " many times around the world" ( or something close to that)...and I did it thinking it would be an extremly blended quilt or it woudl create movement in unexpected ways...It is a blended quilt...but you can still see the intent of the design...which I think turned out very pretty..The quilt is bigger than queen...so I can't lay it out and get a proper picture. I am going to try and quilt it this weekend.

    It looks great. The fabrics work together really well - I love both the colours and the nature/woodland themes of them :)

    I love all the subtleties in the color variations. It reminds me of a watercolor. As usual this is another beautiful creation!
