    I finished this top just now. It has an interesting history. I started it in a class who knows when--so it was like starting over, except I had some finished blocks so I just went about making more just like what I had finished in the class. When I laid them together they didn't look like anything--so then I went on the internet and googled "Arabic Lattice Quilt" and found a pattern, which I could not do, because in it, there were mirror image blocks. Mine were already cut out and so had to figure out something else. I unsewed 8 blocks and switched the yellow and flowers around so they were opposite each other, then I unsewed 4 more blocks I already done. After all that, what you see is the outcome. Sorta' can imagine a lattice when you look at it, I think. Enjoy
    The yellow is much more yellow in real life. The flowers look about right in the picture.

    Thanks for all the nice comments. The floral fabric is from Hobby Lobby (I think) and I saw it recently, so they must still be carrying it. The "I think" means it might have been JoAnn's, sorry I can't remember which.
