Royal Reflections Quilt and battling shingles

Royal Reflections Quilt
I did have plans to do another grocery bag for you today but do not feel real wonderful. I have been battling shingles for a week and my daughter had her wisdom teeth out in hospital yesterday so not real enthused to sew.  I have decided to post a photo of my Royal Reflections Quilt made about 5 years ago. It is a design by Kenny Kreations and is a huge quilt.The designs were digitized after Lyn Kenny saw the floor tiles in a church in Paris - Sainte Chapelle.The Gothic chapel was built by the French king, Louis IX in the 1240's.
I took a photo of my quilt by getting two girls to stand on a table holding it up and then it was a struggle.The quilt is constructed using a quilt as you go method. I originally had inserted a middle block upside down so it was not that difficult to pull it apart at that spot and redo it. It is larger than a king size quilt.
I am afraid that my quilts are far from being prize winning but I enjoy making them to keep the beds and the cupboard warm!
