The blocks are 12.5" and you can easily make three from a fat quarter so it's really up to you how big of a project you want to make. Although I agonized over my photography skills -- I usually do -- I am totally pleased with the quilt and design itself. I think it would look gorgeous in solids or just two colors too so I'll probably be making another one soon.
The second new thing is my walking foot. I finally ordered an easy-feed sewing foot for my freebie machine. Now I'm invested! Although my stitching actually suffered a little, especially in-the-ditch; my speed really increased. I know I'll be practicing more with it and making bigger quilts in the future.
I'm still learning and growing as a quilter but the design part of it is a key element for me. When I brainstormed ideas, this was one of five I pitched and then, as I constructed the quilt, I jotted down notes for two new projects. I so hope that someone finds the tutorial useful as it would totally please me to see more quilts made from it. Since I've really learned to sew through online tutorials, it means so much to me to give back to that process.
It's also the Blogger's Quilt Festival this week so I'm entering Ladder Lattice in the Original Design Quilts Category. Just because I can and it feels so good.
This quilt leaves 10 inch squares (actually, a little more) for scraps so I'm working on a pattern that will use those next. Please come back to check it out.
That's it for now. Thanks for stopping by!
