I’m excited to share another variation of one of my post popular quilt patterns of all time: my Lattice Quilt pattern. This quilt is perfect for showing-off beautiful big prints as well as using up a favorite 10″ x 10″ stack of fabric precuts (also known as Layer Cakes).
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 fabrics, I thought why not do it again this time using Amy Butler’s Dreamweaver collection.
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 shout out 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 in downloadable PDF and hard copy Paper versions. (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.)
I took these snow pictures while I was away teaching in Logan 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? 😉
