Thoughts from Ali
This pattern is a fabulous way to show off a fabric line, with pops of colour showing through the background like a stained glass window.
It's fat quarter friendly, and uses the Easy-Corner-Triangle method, but a new one you might not know...the Easy-Corner-Half-Rectangle method.
Both of these methods have videos for support, and you'll see that these are both a super useful tool to have in your quilting repertoire.
This pattern is chain pieced and is a super fast make for a stunning finish!
Imagine the feeling of gifting this twinkly and crinkly quilt to that someone special and seeing their delight!
The Crystal Lattice quilt is a confident beginner level pattern which you can create in two sizes, Throw (60" x 60"), (152.5 cm x 152.5 cm) and Baby (45" x 45"), (114 cm x 114 cm).
The repeating block style is easy to learn, and all seams nest, making for fast and accurate progress.
The pattern features colour graphics with full instructions to make the two main units, and step by step clear written instructions which help you see and understand.
There are also two videos to demonstrate the techniques as well.

This quilt can be constructed from both fat quarters or scraps, which make it fun scrap buster for those wishing to sew their stash.
There's plenty of scope to create this in a modern or traditional style, bright or muted, and totally make this design your own.
Sample shown is created in Tilda Happy Campers.
