A Christmas Finish

I've finished piecing Garden Lattice.  Picking out my fabric sets was harder than piecing the blocks.  




The pattern called for 35 blocks, 7 rows of 5 blocks, I'm working through a square quilt phase so I made 25 blocks, 5 rows of 5 blocks.



This is lifetime quilt number 147
The pattern is Garden Lattice from Cindy Lammon's Simply Modern Christmas book. (If you missed Cindy's blog post showing her latest project, go check it out now, it's very clever, Hyacinth Quilt Designs in my blog list)
The fabric is all Kate Spain for Moda, different families from my stash.
It finished at 64 1/2" x 64 1/2"
It has approximately 457 pieces.




I thoroughly enjoyed working on this pattern.  The fabric added to my Christmas spirit while the simple directions didn't add to my Christmas stress.  I think this pattern would work for any style of fabric and could be a great stash buster, keep it in mind as you plan your projects for 2015.

  3. I am a new reader of your blog and I have to say that I am in awe of the lifetime quilts you have made. I so wish I had recorded all of mine from the beginning... When I started we didn't have computers to share with others... I am not all that old but born before the pc era.

    I have thoroughly enjoyed looking through your quilts. I have to say, you don't choose easy patterns either!

  8. That is lovely Thelma. I have a question for you. I have a couple of layer cakes of older Kate Spain collections, and wonder if this pattern would lend itself to layer cakes?
