Step 3: Lattice Strips

Our lattice strips were made of a cherry printed material. The number of lattice strips will depend on how many quilt block you end up making.  Our quilt was 3 squares wide and 4 squares long... and it turned out a little small. (It would be perfect for a child's bed.)

Cut strips to 3" x 12.5".  You will need enough to connect the squares together lengthwise (Block A to Block B), plus a strip on the outside edge of each row.  In our case, we cut 16 of these pieces.  Sew all of the Rows together... (using 1/4" seams)

Then you need to cut lattice strips that will go the entire length of the rows.  We have 4 rows, so we cut 5 of these lattice strips... 3" x the width of you quilt... ours was 46" long. 

You may want to frame your quilt with wider lattice pieces on the outside eges, or even do a second border around the quilt blocks to add a little more depth. to the quilt.
You said 16- 3inch squares sewn together with 1/4in allowance would make a 12.5 inch square. I don't understand because even with no seam a 4x4 square of 3 inches each would already only be 12 x 12 inches? Can you fix the error or explain? Thanks! <br>
Very pretty. I love all the embroidery and stitching you did by hand. It is becoming a lost art, I believe. I think sewing 'with' a sewing machine is becoming a lost art too. Very few people I know even know how to sew period.
Nice, the doggies are so cute!
