The Spellbound Quilt

It has been ages since I've made a really simple strip pieced quilt. Combine that fact with the fact I'm a bit of a sucker for speciality rulers that make a quilt look harder than it really is and I decided to join in with The Fat Quarter Shop Spellbound Quilt A Long.

The pattern calls for a couple of jelly rolls plus additional fabric. I had a bit of a jelly roll lurking but nothing more.

I therefore added to it with scraps which, for me, makes the best kind of quilt anyway.

You'll also need one of these:

You're then using it to make quarter-square triangles from strip pieced fabric and that is about as difficult as it gets.

The resultant quilt top, in my wholly biased opinion, is really rather nice.

I appreciate it's not my normal mad cacophony of colours but I think I like this one even more for that fact.

The colour this time is brought to you naturally by a crocus explosion, finally signalling spring is on its way.
