Sometimes being cheap is ridiculous. I like to think that not buying a pattern means that I can spend more on fabric, but after a loooooong afternoon trying to figure out quilt math on this lattice work, I wish I’d just plunked down a couple of bucks and bought the Hugs and Kisses pattern – which I now think I’ll do anyway. In the meantime, I want to be sure to give some credit to the pattern as inspiration even if I winged it on this one a little.
This quilt is heading to the Bay area where two friends from grad school just delivered their little girl. She’s precious, and I hope that she loves having a handmade snuggle quilt or playmat or whatever she wants to use this for!
The lattice is a mix of Joel Dewberry’s Heirloom and Modern Meadow lines. The background is Kona Parchment, and the back is a super soft flannel polka dot – I have no idea whose it is or what it’s called.
I don’t often give dimensions, but this quilt, like most of my baby quilts, is 45″x45″ because I feel like anything smaller doesn’t leave much room for those big babies – or little babies who inevitably grow into big babies!
