    Lattice flower quilt

    I made this top awhile ago. Now a dear friend , who loves flowers is in the hospital It was time to finish it for her. She always let me borrow her cherry pitter, so the back worked out perfect. Thanks for looking

    I love a lattice quilt and often wonder why I haven't made one...your friend is going to love your gift! (I'm sure she'll appreciate the cherries too!)

    Making one exactly like yours; but with xmas fabrics is on my short to do list!
    Maybe this year! =)

    Yours is very nice! What was the unfinished size of your diamonds and lattice?

    My lattice was 1 1/2 unfinished, my diamonds were about 5x8 point to point unfinished. This tutorial is similar to the one I used. I made it so long ago not sure what I used, but this will get you through how to make the template. Thanks for looking.
    Matching the diamonds was a challenge, don't look too close, I will try another one soon, and maybe do better.

    Yep, she will love this one. Both sides are nice and she will have a hard time deciding which she likes best. Good job. She will be thrilled and happy you finished it for her.

    I love how you used cherry fabric for the back since she loaned you her cherry pitter! What a nice thing to do
    Beautiful quilt!

    So nice and what a great way to use florals. May have to be my next quilt as I am in the stash breaking mode.

    Beautiful work and fabric.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.
