Hot Apple Cider Quilt

I bought a jelly roll last year after Halloween -half price.

I made this adaptation of 'Strawberry Lemonade", a pattern in the book, "Strip Lovers Quilts", by Susanne McNeill. (The book was also half price!) The quilt in the book is in summer brights. Mine is in Halloween brights, most from the jelly roll with a few substitutions and additions. The colors are a bit like Cheetos and movie popcorn, but I'm getting to like them better.

You sew strips together and cut into blocks to make half square triangles.

Like my 'Round Halloween quilt in my previous post, I guess this is another tablecloth, since it's also not quilted. (Do you see a pattern here??)
Make it a wonderful day!


  1. I LOVE this - hope you're bringing it on Friday...and the book too? And then maybe you'll consider letting me borrow it?? So cute!

  2. Great quilt...even better that the fabric and pattern was half off. don't you love it when that happens? Love the green zig zag at the bottom.

  3. I love this, too. It's very fascinating.

  4. You can't beat a bargain! I think it's a beautiful quilt and I love the floral border fabric. Maybe you should set yourself a goal to quilt one of your table cloths. It's the only thing that works for me. Having said that, I must set myself one too!

  5. It's a wonderful holiday quilt. I love the ric rac pattern, but haven't tried it yet...
