My new favorite pattern

In the "It's mine, you can't have it" category, we have my recently finished lattice quilt.

The quilting was simple, and only took an evening. Just straight lines echoing the seams of the patterned fabric, which is Petal by Tanya Wheelan. The "white" in the top is Kona Snow.

I just love the little way a square forms at the intersection, framing the points where the different fabrics meet.

For the back, I just used some fabrics I had on hand, mostly solids, but I found a red gingham and threw some of that in too.

The colors in the back are darker than the colors in the top, but they blend well.

I don't remember the name of the blue, or the light neutral, but the dark neutral is stone, and as you can see, I've used it for the binding as well. I think it frames all the lighter fabrics beautifully.

This quilt finished at 49" x 64", which is perfect for an extra quilt on my side of the bed only. It would also make a great quilt for the couch, but this dog is only allowed supervised visits with quilts:

Somewhere along the way, she developed quite a taste for them and we've been unable to break her of it.

I'm linking up to Crazy Mom Quilts for her Finish it Friday series. I love those project bags she's putting together - I may need to make some of those myself.


  1. What a pretty quilt! It's the kind of quilt that just begs to be cuddled up with.

  2. So pretty! I, too, love the little squares where the points meet:) Daisy looks so innocent... but we know better.

  3. A very pretty quilt. The quilting does look good. Well done on your finish. Visiting from FIUF.

  4. Hi. Really pretty quilt. Did you piece it by cutting square and adding 21/2 strip to each of the triangles?

  5. Such a sweet quilt and it looks so snuggly. I can see why you are keeping claim.

  6. I love it - pinks and blues are my favourite colours!! It looks a nice easy pattern too. Can you share where you found the pattern please?

  7. Really pretty! Vintage and modern looking, all at once!

  8. Wow! I love it! Doesn't it feel good to have a finish for yourself? My extended family gets upset when I say I am making the quilt "just because."
