New Lattice Quilt with Dream Weaver by Amy Butler

Excited to share a new finish using Amy Butler’s latest collection, Dream Weaver for Free Spirit fabrics.

Amy Smart Lattice Quilt

This quilt is a remake of my Lattice Quilt pattern. I figured it was time for an update, since the fabrics in the original version are pretty hard to come by now. But since the original looked so good in Amy Butler, I thought why not do it again.

This quilt was finished in time to teach this Lattice Quilt pattern as a class at Winter Quiltfest this past weekend. It was so fun to see what fabrics other people used. It’s such a good pattern for showing off big bold prints. A huge shoutout to my friend Diane for being my stunt-double and piecing this one for me in time to take to Quiltfest. And to Melissa from Sew Shabby Quilting for doing the quilting.

In addition to the Dream Weaver cottons, we also used a piece of the Voile so we could get that darker, ink-y blue in there. We also added a few extra Free Spirit prints to the mix to bring out a few more colors including a red Heather Bailey Clementine print and a gold Anna Maria Horner Folk Song print.

I also added a couple of Amy Butler’s True colors prints, including this bright pink Cotton Blossom Fig that we used for the Cornerstones and Binding. I love the way it pops against the other colors.

The Lattice pattern comes in Throw, Twin, Queen, and King sizes and is available in my Pattern Shop. (If you are purchasing from the EU, please buy it from my Etsy shop as they can take care of all the VAT issues. Thanks.)

Dream Weaver is hitting your local quilt shop now. I’ve also seen it available online at Hawthorne Threads, Etsy, and precuts from Craftsy.

I took these snow pictures while I was away teaching last weekend. It’s a rural area and there was lots of gorgeous, fresh snow as a backdrop. I got out of my car to use that awesome fence and ended up in snow up to my knees (which wasn’t part of the original plan when I spotted this location) just to get these shots, soaking my legs in the process. But I think it was worth it. It’s all about paying the price for a great quilt shot, right? 😉

    I made your Brickyard pattern quilt, and I loved it! I am thinking that it is time for me to try another, and the Lattice quilt looks to be right up my alley! I love the color palette!

      Thanks Karen. It was so much fun to meet you!! I felt bad that I didn’t say goodbye the last day. I was having tire issues and so worried about getting home in the storm that I snuck out early. Sounds like your drive was not fun. Yikes. Glad you made it home eventually, but sorry for the stress! Great to see you. I hope our paths cross again! xo

    I am so glad that you gave the added the added fabric details, they fit in perfect and I might be searching them out because just like you said they finish it beautifully… a pop of color here, some added variation there. Thanks Amy, for sharing your talents with us.

    Oh, what a beautiful update! Super that you had such a good sunny double, longarmer, and quilt staging technician! There’s nothing as fine as snowy light for quilts. That AB True Colors print for binding (and cornerstones?) really makes this sparkle!

    Love it, Amy! And you are right, this is a great pattern to show off big bold prints that get lost when you cut small pieces. You can really showcase the fabrics in this one!

    BEAUTIFUL! Bought your pattern and some Amy Butler fabrics. Have never set a quilt on point before. Any notes, tips or videos available from the Winter Quiltfest on how to keep it from stretching on the bias? Thanks.
