For this quilt I used the Crazy Nine Patch Lattice Tutorial from the site above. I used 9 different fabrics in three different colors. Because I layered the fabrics brown, blue, green repeat, the blocks kind of look like they are woven.
I wanted to get an idea of what I could do with this block, so I laid all the blocks out on the floor and took a look. First I put them side by side.
Then I put them on a piece of background fabric with a little space around them to represent sashing...
Then I set them on point, I tried it with four pieced blocks...
and another version with five.
All of the layouts had something unique to offer, but I ended up making the quilt like the first lay out because I liked the woven look for this application. This quilt is featured in a post from back in May. You can see a picture of it finished and read more about it here: Jordan's Quilt
Natalia and I belong to the Utah Valley Machine Quilting Guild. A few months back we held a meeting in her beautiful Heber Valley studio! She allowed me to take a few pictures inside and gave me permission to share them with you! The quilt on the wall won a contest you may recognize it!
Here is a variation on a quilt that has become her trademark and a colorful hexagon quilt.
Natalia is quite an inspiration! She taught a class about blogging and that is how I got started blogging. I am so grateful to Natalia for her information, inspiration and encouragement!
This is a quilt she designed using a jelly roll. It helped her get started working with Moda..... So cute!
Now she is a published author! Here are a few books that include her work.
This is her book!
Then we had a lovely lunch with yummy recipes found on her blog. Such a nice day we had! Thank you Natalia!
