Hello quilty friends. It's been quite an exhausting week in the Shush household, what with the excitement of hosting WIP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced and then finishing the lattice quilt.
Yes you heard me right - the Lattice Quilt is all finished. This quilt has been such a rollercoaster ride - it was pretty hit and miss there for a while whether it would get finished at all. Then there was the greasy mark incident - I mean honestly, you wonder if some things aren't meant to be. But now it's finished, and the world is a better place.
Well, that might be a bit extreme, but I'm sure happy.
And because hubby has a new camera, I even took it outside for a photo shoot. I'm not sure quite why a quilt would choose to drape over a bench seat in the sunshine, but apparently that was what it wanted to do. Who am I to question these things?
The wind conveniently wanted to show you the DS 2011 print on the back. That is no artful arrangement of mine, I tell you. I was responsible for the broom in the background though. Really wishing I'd moved it now ...

Are you loving it? I am, and that of course is the ultimate test of taste and discernment in quilting.
After it had finished draping and fluttering around being artful, quilt told me it would like to be folded up and sit on the wee table. This is so you can admire the chocolate binding. And it turns out we all like chocolate, don't we?! Don't forget to ooh and ahh over the stippling plus straight line quilting.
The total size is roughly 56" x 74", and it's made of only 12 blocks. The patchwork fabric is Coquette by Moda. I had a layer cake to use, and I have enough leftover to make something else. Like I need another project on the go! The solids are a random hot pink and aqua from Spotlight. Here's hoping that pink doesn't run in the wash. Then there would be tears before bedtime.
I have set out before the rough details of how it was made. But let me know if you want a proper tutorial with all the deets so you don't have to go rummaging around the interwebby. I could do that for you, my quilty friends. Yes, I could.
I'm feeling pretty good now it's done. Now it's on to Oh Deer (blergh), the Zombie Quilt (grab your hatchet, there may be bloodshed), EPP (that's not finishing any time soon) and my Citrus Sweet Love BOM. Plus anything else I can think to start from the monster stash. I just can't. stop. shopping.
Linking up to all the fabulous linky parties. Howdy visitors! I hope everyone has a lovely weekend.
