Remember the quilt for the Firemen’s Benefit that I’m trying to hurry through? I told you about it here on Monday.
Then I had seen a link on Facebook to a Missouri Star Quilt Company video for the Checkered Lattice Quilt. Find it here. I watched it and thought that was it…
I picked out my fabric. I sewed my blocks.
I trimmed by blocks but as I was trimming I realized that I got myself into a bit of a problem.
Making these according to the directions I end of with two blocks that are reverse blocks. That works great if I hadn’t used only two different fabrics. Can you see that the lattice run in opposite directions?
I played with some layouts….I don’t like the the squares would have a seam in them.
I thought running the lines diagonally rather than in a lattice might work but then the “squares” don’t square up. Can you see that they are off kilter?
Then I tried this which is okay but I’m back to the seams in the “squares”.
Then I decided maybe I’d be better off if I made two baby quilts instead….One would be with one set of blocks and one with the other. It would look more like this.
UGH. I wanted this to be a quick project. Oh well.
