Scrappy Lattice Finished

My Scrappy Lattice is finished and I love how it turned out, Old-Timey looking as all get out.  It may be one of the two or three favorites that I've made.

Sorry about the bad lighting.

It's huge on every side, but it hasn't been washed yet.  I don't think it'll be too small if it shrinks a few inches.

The back, not gorgeous, but it's flannel and cozy and the band of scraps lets me know which end is up.   I won't have to write in sharpie pen "short" so I'll know how to make the bed, that's what I do to some sheets and mattress pads.  Everything about this quilt is scrappy, even the binding.

I really like your scrappy quilt, it looks like a scrappy quilt should - scraps but tied together with the same design and the same coloured lattice. And it's huge! It must have been a beast to quilt. What sort of wadding do you use that lets it drape so beautifully at the corners?

Amanda said...

I meant to ask - what size are the finished blocks?

Love your scrappy lattice. Even with all the variety, the white ties it all together beautifully.

Candace--this quilt is so pretty! I'm sort of feeling like a fool for never taking a sharpie to my linens...I've just put them on wrong the first time every single week. Thanks for the helpful hint.

Oh Candace!!!! How I WISH WISH WISH I would have seen this post earlier! The controlled scrappiness with the white lattice is amazing!!!! I started a similar quilt, but went COMPLETELY scrappy; lattice and all; definitely not to my liking. I'll have to switch over to white lattice and use the blocks I've made so far in the back.

very nice quilt. I had never considered doing a scrappy binding but it is very cute on your quilt - gonna have to try that.

I love it and I love the idea of the scraps on the back tell you which way is up. Might be doing that myself in future!
