    Easy Patchwork Lattice Baby Quilt

    Hello!

    I am Pat in Massachusetts. I have been a member for a long time but have not posted much. There is so much creative quilting happening here that I am not sure why I have been away so long. I hope to be a more frequent member in the future again.

    I am working on a new method for adding lattice to a top or making patchwork plaid and interwoven quilts. I am vision impaired and I need to find easy method that work for me. I hope you enjoy this too.

    I am adding a photo of my WIP on my design wall.

    My scrap squares were 4.5" so I cut my white lattice strips at 1.25" I sewed them directly to my top and then used my regular quilting ruler with the 1/4" line on the seam and cut along the outside on my seam line for my 1/4" seam. The I lined up my squares and sewed the two pieces back together. I did not pin. Since I am vision impaired, I use touch a lot to match my seams. I am finding this very easy to do.

    If I were using regular 5" charm packs, I think I would cut my strips at 1.5" to look proportional.

    For a layer cake, I would cut 2.5" strips or use a jelly roll.

    I am taking the old idea that "if you can sew a straight line, you can make a quilt" to try "if I can sew a straight line I can cut a straight line."

    I hope you enjoy trying this yourself ... have a happy quilty day ... Pat

    Hi Pat from Massachusetts...I used to live in MA (Boston and Quincy).

    I absolutely love the way this WIP looks. It's going to make a little girl very, very happy!

    How wonderfully creative you are. The quilt is a bit of fun and joy, and pretty into the bargain.

    Love the look of the pink fabrics with the white strips thru the quilt.

    This is so lovely, Pat. I didn't realize that lattice quilts were made like that. I'm going to send a PM with some questions. Thanks for posting it.

    hugs,
    Charlotte
