Celtic Tree of Life

I know I do a lot of the design work on EQ for my quilts, but first I plot a quilt out in my head.  
2016 BOM is still very much in my head and I have changed my mind about a couple of the blocks already a couple  of times.  The first block has been drafted in EQ for quite some time and that was all I had it was going to be a quilt with 9 blocks of equal sizes.  

I do a lot of the brain drafting while driving to work and I came up with the idea of the central block which you might gather from the quilt title is going to be a tree while waiting at the lights.    Then came the idea of celtic knot work for the central blocks on the outside of the quilt I don't know where that came from probably in bed when I wake up at 2am.  Last years BOM was very haphazard probably because that was the way my head was working.  This BOM will be more ordered but no less intricate.  

I have started pulling fabrics see below.  I can't guarantee all of these will be in the quilt but it is a starting point.  I'm really itching to get started.  

The next block for Bee Inspired should be up shortly in fact I should have organised it today but i've been running around.  It will be up by tomorrow.  

Bit of progress this week.  

My travelling companion today.

You've got lots of fun fabrics in your first draw. Looking forward to seeing the blocks develop.
