The Purple Quilt or Light Fantastic to give it its official name has been progressing well.

Here we have the border pieces laid out ready for piecing.

The quilt top went together like a dream, then I procrastinated about how to quilt it....
I prefer simple quick and easy quilting, I'm not a fan of doing stipple or any elaborate quilting. Not that the design I decided on is particularly quick, but it is easy and a simple design.
Inspiration finally struck whilst browsing through Angela Walters Shape by Shape book. I adapted one of the patterns she suggests for triangles, and I think it'll work well.

Here is part of it layered and marked up ready for the quilting. 

I am running a little behind as this one should have been finished by now, but I'm hoping to be able to catch up this month. I've found the March quilt, a small wall-hanging, which is ready for layering up and quilting, so if I don't procrastinate too long I will hopefully get back on track...
