Circle Lattice Quilt Finished!

February 6, 2015

 

Circle Lattice 1A finish for Friday!!  Nothing makes me happier…

This week, I tied up all the loose ends on my version of Carolyn Friedlander’s Circle Lattice quilt.

I went with a bold, complementary color scheme of blue and orange, with some white for the negative space.  It measures 46″ x 46″. I quilted it with on my Bernina with simple swirls, and I’m loving it!  It’s up in our Etsy shop if you happen to need a last minute baby gift.

I bought Carolyn’s recent book several months ago when she came to visit our guild.  That night, Stephanie and I had brought our Love Triangle quilt to show our friends at the meeting… we had no idea Carolyn would be there.  Ironically, we had used her Architectures print on the back of the Love Triangle quilt, so we were thrilled to have a chance to show her.

We both love Carolyn’s fabric and use it every chance we get (Stephanie is obsessed with Doe at this moment, so don’t be surprised if you see a post on that sometime soon).

I flipped through the book while we were still at the meeting, and knew I had to make Circle Lattice as soon as I could.

The motif is applied with raw edge applique, and I used a small zig zag stitch around the edges.

    This quilt is on my to-make list, indeed!! I love yours, and what a perfect baby quilt! Great idea to use raw edge applique for time’s sake–and to make it more sturdy for those babies to drag around!

    This is a great quilt – I really like your use of complimentary colors and the white background.

    This is great. I love how the design produces subtle female symbols: it’s a girl-power quilt that isn’t pink!!

    This is one of my favorite projects from her book.

    Your circles look so perfect! How great to meet Carolyn Friedlander (I am also obsessed with Doe, trying to figure out what to do with my small stash).
