Lattice Quilt July Pinterest Challenge
Welcome to the July Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop, hosted by My Pinterventures. How many pins do you have that you’ve never tried? Well, the purpose of this Pinterest Challenge is to motivate all the participants of this hop (and you too) to not just pin, but to make it happen! Sign up to join next month’s challenge and join the fun! This month, I chose to make a Lattice Quilt for one of our spare bedrooms. I was inspired by this pin for a lattice baby quilt.
Materials for Lattice Quilt Top:
72 – 5″ squares (or 2 charm packs)
1 ½ yards of white fabric
From the white fabric cut:
1 strip 5″ x width of fabric
1 strip 7 3/4” x width of fabric
10 strips 1 ½” x width of fabric
For the corner triangles cut 2 – 4 ¼” squares from the 5″ width of fabric. Cut those 2 squares in half diagonally to make 4 triangles.
From the 7 3/4″ strip cut 5 squares – 7 3/4 inch on each side. Cut each of those squares twice – both on the diagonal. This gives you 20 triangles.
Pin the 5″ squares to the 1 ½” strips, rights sides together.
Sew with a ¼” seam. Press seam towards the 5″ square.
Cut between 5″ squares so that each square has a white rectangle attached.
Layout your pieces to make your design. The pieces are laid out on point.
Sew the diagonal rows together using ¼” seams. Add the white triangles to the ends of the rows and at each corner. Then attach each diagonal row to a 1 ½” strip.
Sew all of your rows together. Sew desired border then add the backing and batting. Finally quilt as desired and add a binding.

Wow, this quilt looks fantastic! Love the soft colors!
Wow, this was a big, beautiful project! It was be a very generous gift and likely become an heirloom.
This is so pretty! you did a beautiful job, great to be in this challenge with you, will be pinning it.
Wow! That is absolutely beautiful!! I love the colors you picked too. Pinned.
Gorgeous! I love a vintage looking quilt. Very pretty Roseann. It will make any quest feel welcome.
That three letter word that begins with S and ends with W is so intimidating to me. But how I love the looks of patchwork quilts. Your color palette is so pretty and your finished piece is a like an English garden.
Very pretty, thanks for sharing!
This is so beautiful, I think I need to learn how to quilt before I become a grandmother so I can make something sweet like this for my future grandkids 😀 You are so talented and I cherish the ornament you made for me during last year’s ornament exchange challenge ❤

This is so pretty. The colors are so pretty. I always look at quilts and see a family heirloom. How special for new parents to receive this.
My, what a beautiful one of a kind quilt creation, Roseann! You are so talented and creative!
Thanks so much Gail!
This is gorgeous! I love those pre cut packs. It’s easier for me to choose between packs than to agonize over individual fabrics, hahaha! I do a lot of vicarious quilting on You Tube and the strip quilts are probably my favorites to watch come together. I’ll be you got a lot of enjoyment out of this beauty!
Thanks Lydia! I do love the pre-packaged/pre-cut fabrics – saves so much time!
Seeing your beautiful quilt has made me want to start quilting!! Just beautiful and love the gorgeous soft coloured material that you chose!

This turned out beautifully! I am so impressed with people that can quilt. I have tried…okay maybe halfheartedly….to quilt and it didn’t click. I should probably try it again one of these days.
A friend of mine recently tried quilting. She told me she didn’t much like it because it involved too much math!
What a beautiful quilt! Love the soft colors!
Thank you Michelle!
I’ve always wanted to make a quilt, but it seems to intimidating. Your tutorial is clear, so maybe I can make a mini one 🙂 to practice.
There are lots of great patterns for making small quilts!
This is a lovely quilt! I love the pink and blue color combination!
