Bonnie and Camille Urban Lattice Quilt

I have a finished quilt top!



I can honestly say that I loved every step of the making of this quilt. It came together beautifully without any pesky seam-matching issues or edges that aren't square. It was an absolute joy to make.


Blues aren't usually my first choice when quilting, but I felt they would pay respect to the crispness of the Bonnie & Camille charms, and I love the end result! This top reminds me of a little B&C museum, with the prints showcased by frames.

This quilt will be lap sized, approximately 55 x 63 inches. It would make a cute picnic blanket, with all the cheery colours.


The deadline for the B&C Charm Along over at Ms Midge is the 27th October. I would have loved to finish the entire quilt, but with 2 kids under 3 I think I did well to at least piece a top ;-)

    1. Thanks Jen! I took a bit of a risk with those blues (bought them online without seeing in person), so it was a relief it worked.
