Latitude Lattice ~ A Finished Quilt

I’m a bit overdue sharing this quilt, but I didn’t forget! Latitude Lattice is one of two gift quilts I made for the end of the school year. I used a jelly roll of Kate Spain’s Latitude fabric, and Kati from The Blue Chair’s Lattice quilt tutorial. (Kati provides a free template download right before Step 1 in her tutorial.)

This quilt was gifted to my son’s amazing 2nd grade teacher. I just love our teachers. I personally can’t imagine a harder job! We have always been blessed with caring and compassionate teachers, and this year was no exception. They are like second moms and dads to our kids.

It’s always hard for me to decide on fabric for a teacher quilt. I try to ask the kids “what is their favorite color?” or “is there a style they might like?” This year all I got was “she likes cats.” lol Well, I didn’t want to make a quilt entirely of cat fabric (sorry!), but I also remembered someone mentioning that she liked to garden. I thought Kate’s fabric was a perfect match.

The quilt measures 54″ x 72″. I think that makes a fantastic lap size. The backing is another print from the Latitude line, Navigate Ocean. I quilted it in a meandering free motion design using my BERNINA’s Stitch Regulator foot (BSR). I think the lattice design paired with Kate’s beautiful colors make this a perfect Summer quilt!

    What a beautiful quilt! I love the colors, and the pattern is simple but so classic. I’ve never felt the desire to make a lattice quilt, but seeing your quilt, I’ve put it on my list! It’s a great gift for a teacher.

    Great job, so neat and clean. Speaking as a former teacher, she is so lucky to get this. Good for you.

    Wow, you really have “upped the ante” on teacher gifts
    Back in Dinosaur days I used to just make incredibly beautiful () floral arrangements/swags with eucalyptus and dried flowers. Bam! Done.
    This quilt is gorgeous, and I agree, good teachers deserve good gifts!

    Oh, you’ve done a wonderful job! I love this fabric and had plans for it when I purchased mine. Your quilt has made me totally forget what I had planned. Now I want to make one similar to yours. Thanks so much for sharing your creation!
