    I'm making this for my Mother who has just entered a nursing home after falling and breaking several ribs. She is 85. The nursing home is very nice, but her room needs some brightening. I think I will make a narrow border (1 1/2" finished) of perhaps the green and then a 3 " wide border of the brown. I'm open to suggestions and advice. I am about 2/3 complete.

    That is so cool looking. She will love it! I might do the border in a brighter color.

    I love this pattern. I just got the book and can't wait to get started. Your colors will definitely brighten the room.

    I have never put together a quilt with this technique. Thank you so much for posting as a WIP. I have recently started noticing Lattice Quilts and I really like the "woven" look to them. How did you learn this technique of piecing, is it in a book, on the net, a stand alone pattern?

    Edited to add: Before I just so rudely burst forth with all my technical questions.. :lol:

    Your quilt is just lovely!

    Interesting seeing it in progress. Maybe it's done with partial seams. Maybe.

    I love the colors, and the pizzazz added by the striped fabric is wonderful.

    Love it!
    A word of caution, if it's going to be used as a quilt, take photos and put your mom's name on it in large letters. Residents with memory problems decide that something is theirs and will walk off with it. A better option may be a wall hanging.

    It is done with partial seams and I got the pattern here on the QB just a few days ago. I agree the one fabric does read as stripes in the photo, but they are actually dragonflys.

    I plan to embroider Mom's name, prominently, on the front and back of the quilt. She stays so cold, I really need to make this as a quilt instead of as a wallhanging.
