Serendipity Quilt

Due to a series of fortunate events, I made this quilt:

Here’s how it happened.  You may recall that C&T sends me quilt books and products to review, and if I really like them I write about them here.  So a while back I received this book:

Then a couple of weeks later, I entered a contest sponsored by Pineapple Fabrics and my project was a runner up.  They sent a wonderful box of pre-cuts, including a jelly roll.  So the only question was which quilt to make!  The book had many attractive options, including these:

I eventually chose the lattice quilt because it looked so do-able.  And it was!  The instructions even suggested designing your own spacing for the border, and you know how I like doing my own thing, so that was great.

Here’s a picture of the pretty flowers quilted on it by Julia Madison:

If you are thinking of making this quilt, know that it was fast, easy, and fun.  I did flip some of the seams when joining the pieces so the seams would match up well at the intersections.

  1. What a gorgeous design! Love the colors you used. And how great is it that you get to review quilting books?! Sounds like an enviable “job” to me. 🙂 I’ve never bought a jelly roll, but am certainly not averse to cutting fabric strips from yardage so as to make something as striking as this. Well done!

  2. I have so much trouble deciding which of the quilts from your blog to make next. I haven’t finished Plaidish yet, but someone just donated a huge box of fabrics to me, and I am thinking a lot of those fabrics would look cute in this quilt. I can’t keep up!!! 🙂
