Lattice Quilt, Part Deaux
I got an email from astute blog reader Sandy R. She gave me another source for the Lattice quilt pattern. It can be found in Treasures From Yesteryear: Book Two, Replicating Antique Quilts by Sharon Newman (That Patchwork Place, 1995). Since I had this book (who knew it had the pattern in it!). I looked it up and indeed, it is the Basket Lattice/Reflection of the Past quilt, on page 59. Sharon shows pictures of two quilts, one made in the 1930s with lots of navy and her own reproduction of it. She put the quilt together using partial seams. She also figured out a way to make it in units, so some chain piecing can be done and she has many more diagrams (four pages of instructions to my one). The biggest difference is the size of the units. She cut her's 2"x5" (based on the size of the original quilt) and I cut mine 3"x8". The 3"x8" size will be easier to work with. When you do partial seams, it helps to have room to maneuver. Sharon's quilts also have an interesting diagonal movement of color across the top. I googled the book's title and found many on line for as little as $2.50 (used) or as much as $44 (new).
So there you have it....Two sources for the Lattice Quilt.
Till next time....Happy Quilting.
