Quilt Progress

I have been on holidays for a couple of weeks so have spent some time trying to piece my quilt together. It has been quite difficult as I didn't plan this quilt and have just been making random blocks. My inspiration came from a whole heap of places including quilt books- especially Japanese ones, online tutorials- I made a few Farmers wife blocks, BOM's that I had previously purchased but hadn't made up, images on Flickr- a great source of inspiration and other peoples quilts. I still have a few things to add like leaves to the Hexi flowers.

I still have a lot to do as this is going to be a very large that will cover a Queen size bed. I had some new fabric arrive the other day and am looking forward to including some in the quilt. I have used so many different fabrics including a lot my my little scraps. The hardest part is going to be quilting it. I am not sure how I will do that yet but know that I want to do some in perle coloured thread so some of the features stand out.
