I am so happy with this little quilt. I do have the top together, but I ran out of time yesterday. I still need to attach the corner squares and trim the quilt edges to be square. I will share a full size picture when I get that accomplished.
I won't lie, sewing these lattices on was a major pain. It took forever... Lots of pinning, a bit of unsewing, but in the end it all turned out very satisfactory. It is no joke to get those blocks to line up straight. I remember the first time I sewed a quilt with lattices. I measured my strips, and merrily stitched the rows and lattices together. Imagine my dismay when nothing lined up and all the blocks were askew and wonky. Unfortunately there is much more to lattices than that. They cannot be slapped on.
Here's a funny anecdote. My husband and I celebrated our 49th wedding anniversary this week. And we bought each other the exact same card by accident. I guess after living 49 years with someone you become practically the same person. We all got quite a laugh over that.
Have a wonderful weekend!
