Joni's Quarter Square Lattice quilt

Let’s just take a moment to talk about what a meticulous quilter Joni is. Every. Single. Point. in this quilt was PERFECT! The lattice strips were a narrow 1/2”, which is tricky, because it becomes obvious is it’s not all the exact same width for the entire length. And let me tell you, it was absolutely perfect! 

There were lots of different color hues and values, making this quilt top moderately busy, so we decided to give it an edge-to-edge treatment of dancing paisleys. Joni brings double batts for every quilt she lets me quilt. And she uses heavy starch as she presses the fabric while piecing - and sometimes she even uses TWO layers of fabric for her quilt tops! This all adds up to a deliciously HEAVY quilt. This will be one to grab on a cold winter night, that’s for sure. We're supposed to get "record snowfall" today, so I'd say Joni's got her perfect winter equation!
