Colour, colour and more colour

There are very few fabrics these days that completely knock my socks off.
We seem to be drowning in an increasingly large sea of new fabric line after new fabric line with not much to distinguish one from the other.

In my opinion of course.

And then along came Mostly Manor from Victoria Findley Wolfe and the orange fabric in particular stopped me in my tracks and I knew I had to purchase some.

So I did.

I've never made a quilt with half triangle rectangles before so that's what I decided to do, using as many bright fabrics as I could find.

It was my first time using the Bloc-Loc ruler to trim this particular block and it took me a while to get a hang of it.

The long evening shadows meant it became very difficult to photograph it without inadvertently appearing myself.

How can you not want to hoard that orange fabric?!

I feel it's a happy, cheery quilt which hopefully signals the arrival of warmer, sunnier weather.
