Ever since my Spring/London-inspired fabric collection released over a year ago, I’ve been wanting to make an updated version of the Baby Lattice quilt using Notting Hill 5″ x 5″ squares (aka Charm Packs). It took me a while (so many quilts I want to make, so little time!), but I finally did it. Excited to share the finished quilt.
This quilt is made using the tutorial for a for a baby size version of one of my patterns – the Lattice Quilt. After publishing the original pattern, I frequently had requests for a crib size version, but the scale of the original blocks is too large for a small quilt.
Reducing the scale of the blocks to 5″ x 5″ not only makes it perfect for a baby/crib size quilt but it’s also the perfect pattern for using precut 5″ x 5″ squares. It’s now one of the most popular baby quilt patterns on my site. You can find the free tutorial for the Baby Lattice quilt here.
This is a perfect pattern for showing-off lots of busy prints because the sashing breaks them up, letting each print or color pop.
This quilt was machine quilted by Monica Steelman with an all-over loopy-stipple design.
For the backing I used one of my favorite prints – the Robin’s Egg (Aqua) print with the red and pink English roses.
For the binding I used red gingham on the bias – one of my all time favorite prints for binding.
