I knew I had to do something very special with this fabric, and it had to feature lots of fussy cuts of Tasha's sweet drawings of a country market. I auditioned several patterns until I found THE one. If ever there was a PERFECT fabric and pattern combo, this is it.
The quilt top is not quite finished. I am waiting for yardage to become available here in Australia so I can add a 4" border, and then it will be ready for quilting and binding. I will share photos of the finished quilt with you in a few weeks.
Originally I had planned this as a baby quilt, but once I started making the blocks I couldn't stop, they are very addicting. So it grew and grew into a large lap quilt.
The pattern is called 'Garden Lattice' and it's by Cindy Lammon from her book Simply Modern Christmas - I confess I bought this book purely for this pattern a while ago, and I was pleasantly surprised to find so many amazing quilt patterns in it, and not just for Christmas either. This pattern is simple and forgiving, and solid proof that a pattern doesn't need lots of fiddly points and tricky bits to be incredibly effective! I would rate it as suitable for beginner quilters, as long as you take a bit of care to make sure your garden 'paths' are aligned when you are assembling the blocks together.
