This week I decided to finish another of my quilt tops from the “To Do Basket”. Entering another period of high temperatures I had a choice: sweat outside or sew inside in my one air-conditioned room. Obviously, I went with the second. It was just about a year ago that I pieced together the top of this Lavender Lattice Quilt. I started out following the pattern of one of the “Baby Block” quilts but then went off on my own tangent using muslin and a lavender Moda jelly roll. Since it was one of my first attempts at cutting (with a rotary cutter) and piecing in over 40 years, there are places that are not as straight and aligned as I would prefer, but it was a good learning project and in the end you really cannot see the irregularities unless you go looking for them. I know this is not the usual way to baste the sandwich together, but it works the best for me. I thread baste the top to the batting, and then I pin the backing to those pieces putting in the pins from the top. For this quilt I stitched 1/4 inch on either side of the seams and bound it with one continuous piece. It fits my little kitchen table perfectly and even looks nice on my dining room table. I love using lap size quilts on that little table, and because both the kitchen and dining room are lavender I chose these particular colors.
