a tufted tweets lattice quilt

I guess cleaning can sometimes unearth some fun things you’ve totally forgotten about! Back when I was working on a quilt for Laurie‘s new Tufted Tweets line, I made up several different types of blocks before Laurie and I agreed on the design which ended up being the Unfurnished quilt. These blocks were set aside and I came across them the other day during some organizing.

I had most of the pieces already cut, so it was quick work to put them together into this square little quilt! This design is a lattice design, which I paper pieced (mainly because I enjoy paper piecing… it certainly could be sewn without it). I had wanted to make something like this for quite a while, and you might remember that I ended up making two such lattice quilts out of Flea Market Fancy a few months ago (one finished, one still in the unfinished pile!). Anyway… I think this one’s pretty fun – I love how the Tufted Tweets prints look all mixed together (previously I’ve only used these prints in the separate colorways), and I love the gray background with that little bit of white.

The backing is already done, so hopefully this one won’t languish too long in the unfinished pile!

    Darling! I used some of this line yesterday–the blues and greens–as the class samples for our Intro to Quilting class. I had the same realization at the end as you: I wish I’d used all three colorways, because I totally love them!

    Hello Ashley,

    I was wondering if you could help me with a quilting problem. I have made a quilt using 10×10 squares and I’m trying to quilt it in the same fashion as the first quilt pictured in your Charmed posting. I am doing diagonal lines across the quilt. I am using good thread and a basic sewing machine. The problem is that, once I have sewn a line, the slightest tug will break the stitch. I’ve tried adjusting the tension, but that didn’t help. Do you have any suggestions for this dilemma? Thank you so much.

    Love the combination of fabrics! Paper piecing I don’t understand on this block? I have only used it for hexagons, interesting.

    Oh man I adore this quilt top! I have a stack of Tufted Tweets and this is a great way to show it off without using *too* much of it at a time :-) LOVE it – and may have to make a similar style for my sister & BIL for Christmas! You’re brilliant!
