Urban Lattice Quilt-along
Remember the manly quilt? Well, we couldn't call it that forever so I gave the pattern a new proper name: Urban Lattice. And I've been playing around with different color combinations. Isn't it lovely in yellow? I see so many possibilities for this pattern.
Sooooo, I've decided to not only offer a free tutorial on this quilt but also host a quilt-along. Over the years, many of you have written me about how you want to quilt or that you started sewing after reading my blog. I can't tell you how much joy it gives me knowing that I'm inspiring others to do something I find so much pleasure doing.
If you've been on the fence about quilting, this is your chance to give it a try.
The pattern is easy and you can work at your own pace -- it will be a really laid back quilt-along. You don't need to sign up (although I'd love to know if you plan on participating!) and you can start and stop as you have time. I'm certain many of you will be able to finish your quilts faster than I will be able to finish mine!
I know we all have different skill levels and machine capabilities so I will be showing you how to make three sizes: a baby quilt, a small lap quilt, and a large lap quilt.
I'll be posting a list of material requirements and supplies before week's end so you can see what's involved. Then, as I find the time, I'll publish the tutorial in a series of posts.
I really hope you will consider joining me!
