This is what my living room floor looks like this morning:

Not a particularly practical spot for it – but the room looks very beautiful!

I have to say I feel like a bit of a cheat with this quilt. All I’ve done is cut triangles (according to Anna Maria’s instructions) and the gorgeous fabric has done all the work. I haven’t even had to agonise over which fabrics to use – I’ve just used the 7 prints I have left in the store. So easy (she says before having sewn a single triangle!).

If anyone else is tempted you can download Anna Maria’s free Folk Dance Quilt pattern from her blog. The pattern is for a single bed sized quilt – but mine is just a lap quilt to keep me warm in this cold house and to brighten up my couch when not in use :)
