  1. Wonderful!! I am sure the little man will love it!
    Love the circles on the back!

    I’m with you on the chocolate, but 1 glass of wine and I would be under the sewing table!! Lol

  2. I love both sides of this quilt!
    Love the turquoise blue.
    I love chocolate but I could not eat it while making a quilt: I’m a stain queen!
    All those beautifully straight lines: I bet you had a bottle of wine to keep this consistency!
    Great gift!!

  3. This is absolutely beautiful! I’ve been searching for a design to use with the new Mormor by Lotta Jansdotter and this might be the one! Thank you so much for the wonderful tutorial.

  4. Your quilt is stunning. The back is wonderful too. What a shame you’ve used up all your light blue scraps… you will have to go fabric shopping again. I’m intrigued by this pattern, thanks for sharing the instructions.

  5. It’s beautiful! I’m rather partial to Tiffany blue myself – will have to put this one on my list. Just as soon as my chevron quilt is finished ๐Ÿ˜‰

  6. This is so beautiful both the front and the back. One question I have, in the second section when you attach your blue and white strips to the block you made in step one (the step where you chop off the overhang). Are there any tricks to making sure your white lines on each side line up?

    • I just used my cutting board. I had the square on the board, lined up with the markings, then I could see where to put the white part of the strip so that it was central. I’d use a single pin to hold the two pieces in place as I took a pile to the machine. I ended up doing that for the second pair of strips too, as I have been known to have irregular seam widths from time to time. Especially when wine’s involved. Hope that helps.

    • Hi Sue, my squares on the back are 5″ when finished, so I cut 5.5″ squares. You might notice that each square on the outside edge is actually a rectangle – this was just to make sure my backing was comfortably bigger than my quilt top.

  7. This is so pretty! And perfectly aligned! Do you have approximate yardage requirements for the lattice side, as far as for the size quilt you made? Love the tutorial.

  8. Such a beautiful and timeless quilt – front and back! Such lovely colours, too! I also love your process pics, they are interesting and pretty as well. I’m always a bit lazy to take some process pics, I really should make the effort more, since I love to see them on blogs. And thank you for the great tutorial!

  9. This quilt is wonderful front and back! I love the texture that the quilting added and love the colors too. I bet you’ll be putting some more back into your stash at some point ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. I’ve been following you for awhile and love your sense of fun and style. This quilt is to die…can you tell me what type of thread and stitch length you used for the quilting? It’s great.

  11. Thanks so much for the fantastic tutorial! I used your pattern to make a quilt for my nephew arriving in May/June and I just love, love, love it! I posted pics on my blog, but wasn’t sure if it’s okay to link to it here. If you check it out, I hope you like! Thanks again for sharing your ideas!!

  12. Hi, just checking, I was making this pattern, and in the first step with the 1 1/2″ strips going around the 5 1/2″ color square, I come up with a 7 1/2″ square not 6 1/2″. I think it’s a typo, but others might get confused also. Please let me know if the 6 1/2″ is correct or the 7 1/2″ Thanks

  13. Hi Mary, yep, you’re right – it should be 7.5″. The error didn’t carry through to the next diagram though, so the final block size is still 9.5″. Thanks for pointing that out!
