Winterfresh

For my first completed quilt of 2021, I wanted to pick something seasonally appropriate. The pattern's name is Lattice Vines by Cheryl Brickey of Meadow Mist Designs, but I named this quilt Winterfresh because the fabrics really evoke winter for me.

For the first time ever probably, I combined fabrics that didn't belong to the same collection or was curated by somebody else. (Not including scrappy quilts, of course.) It was rather scary to pick these fabrics that are from 3 different collections, but I think they work well together. I also changed the pattern a bit as the original pattern has an on-point layout, and I made it into a grid instead. I love the super graphic look of this pattern.

I had the quilting all planned out before I even loaded this, and I didn't have to change much on the fly. I knew that I wanted to use a lot of straight lines on the white fabric (there's something delicious about straight lines on white) but also add swirls for elegance, and complete it with geometric designs.

In the sashing strips which are possibly my favorite part of this quilt, I did ribbon candies and more straight lines. I like how they enhance the graphic look of this quilt.

For my first finish of the year, I'm very pleased with this quilt. It was very fun to make and fairly easy to quilt. It's perfect for cuddling with on the couch while drinking hot cocoa and watching snow fall!

  10. Oh my, I love this!! Having the quilt as a grid instead of on-point gives it such a different look. Your quilting (as always) is fabulous and enhances all of the piecing. I am so in love with this (yes, I said it twice, but it needs repeating). Would you allow me to share your work?
