'Amethyst Ring' quilt - beginnings

Summer is aproaching and I thought that I would like to have a picnic blanket. It took me few days of walking around and thinking about what I want. I wanted something modern, geometric and on dark background. 
And in such colours:


So I made a project of my 'Amethyst Ring' quilt using Hope Valley fabrics from Free Spirit (it will measure 63" x 71"):


As I had a FQ bundle of Hope Valley in Fiesta at home, I started with the circle (I changed the inner part slightly). 
I use instructions and templates from Lily's Quilts blog and her QAL.



Now I'm waiting for the fabric which I ordered and soon I will continue...

  4. The quilt you have planned is excellent! The giant dresden looks great, I did not think of using the pattern to make concentric circles.
