The Lattice Quilt

Last month, a good friend told me her daughter is expecting a baby. Oh joy! This will be the first grandchild on both sides of the family.
Last week, my friend called again to tell me it will be a girl. She is over the moon giddy with the news! Of course, I had to ask if she had chosen colors yet and yes, she had.

So, what do I do?

What every quilter does. Start to pull fabric for a quilt!

Grandma-to-be said the colors were minty green, coral/cantaloupe and gray. I like the way today's new moms choose modern color combos. It's so fresh and well, modern!

Then, I went on the hunt for a quilt pattern. Looking through my Pinterest board, I found one I liked. After those last 2 quilts I made, I wanted something simple without a gazillion pieces of varying sizes. Nope, this had to be simple.

I found this:

In one afternoon, I had my pieces cut and laid out.
(no photo taken...oops)

Yesterday, I sewed all of the rows together.


Today, I started to sew the sashing between the rows.

I really like how this is coming together...and so quickly!

Baby's due in April,
so I will have plenty of time to fiddle with it,
but I'm really hoping to get it finished this month.
I don't need another WIP!
