Lattice Quilt, My First Attempt at the UANDUQAL
I've finished with all the Lattice blocks now and am attempting to figure out the proper layout. You can read more about this quilt over at my blog. This particular quilt is a combined effort of trying to play with the #AHIQred' and also the UANDUQAL challenge of making an Unexpected and Unconventional inspired quilt.
It's not terribly obvious at this point, but I didn't try to center the lattice, just trimmed as I went. I'm hopeful that there will be a slight 'make-do' look and feel when all the blocks are finally sewn together. The book 'Unexpected and Unconventional' has been a favorite book of mine since it was first published. So much inspiration to be found within its covers! This isn't my first quilt made from that wonderful starting place and undoubtedly it will not be my last....

I like it a lot! I also like the liberated method of quilt making. It creates such an opportunity for creativity!ReplyDelete
I think this is perfectly wonderful! I've been thinking about something akin to this - love seeing that you've already put one together. (and I agree about the inspirational power of U and U)ReplyDelete
Nice result Audrey. I'm also combining my UandUQAL with the AHIQ challenge, but am finding the double challenge hard.ReplyDelete
I am loving these reds for the background. I think when you piece the block together the little imperfections with create quite the movement in the quilt.ReplyDelete
Thank you for your lovely comments! It was definitely interesting to combine the 'red is a neutral' idea with this style of quilt. I was worried about the darker reds but now see that it is helping create the 'background'. Crossing my fingers the lack of block repeats won't make the quilt look too choppy!ReplyDelete
