Pezzy Lattice Quilt




Hi Everyone!  I'm Amanda Castor from Material Girl Quilts and I am absolutely thrilled to share my first Moda Bake Shop project with you today.

I made this Pezzy Lattice Quilt for a very special teenage boy and am pleased with the way it turned out.  I think the design works great with the Pezzy Prints, but can imagine it used with so many other Moda fabric lines. 

1 – Layer cake (I used Pezzy Print by American Jane)
*3 yds for background (if less than 42" wide you will need 3.5 yds) – (I used Moda Bella Silver)
*4 yds for backing – (I used Deck Chairs Stripe in Summer from the Salt Air line)
*½ yd binding
At least 66" x 78" batting
6 ½" square grid ruler

*For this quilt I chose to use only 30 of the layer cake squares (I knew he wouldn't want pink in his quilt and I didn't use brown by my choice).  If you would like to use more squares, you will need to adjust the amount of background, backing and binding fabric as necessary.  Using all 42 squares would give you a quilt with 12 blocks across and 14 rows total and the final size would be approx. 72" x 84". 


All seams are ¼"

1)   Select 30 layer cake squares and cut into four 2 ½" x 10" strips each.  This will result in 120 strips.  I chose 3 squares of each color selected.





2)  Cut 120 6" squares from the background fabric.

3)  Cut along one diagonal of each 6" background square creating two backing triangles.





4)  Each block will consist of one 2 ½" x 10" strip and two background triangles.

5)  Place one of the triangles RST (right-sides together) roughly centered onto the strip and stitch (to make this go quickly, I chain pieced the first triangle onto each strip before adding the second triangle)


6)  Add the second triangle to the opposite side of the strip and chain piece as before.


7)  Set your seams and press towards the backing fabric.

8)  Place your 6 ½" square grid ruler on top of the blocks and square up, trimming away all excess fabric, leaving you with a 6 1/2" block.  **You should take your time with this step, the squaring up is key to having matching points when you piece the blocks together!! 




9)  Now lay out your blocks to determine your desired look.  You can choose to have the corners start in an X or diamonds like mine.  I chose to create "columns" of each color instead of a random pattern. 



10)  Once you have chosen your final layout design, sew each of your blocks together row by row until it is done.  The key to achieving perfect points is also in the pinning.  Match each seam as shown below before sewing each block together.




11)  Layer with backing and batting and quilt as desired.  I created a smaller "lattice" design on mine.





One 60" x 72" Pezzy Lattice quilt perfect for snuggling under.

I Love This, but how did you get three 10 inch sq.'s of each color in just one layer cake? There are ten colors used here and when I looked at the layer cake lable it shows only Five colors.
Please help

Lynell,
Each Pezzy Print layer cake actually has a total of 12 different colors and there are at least 3 squares of each color (some there are 4). The two colors that I did not include in this quilt are pink and brown. I hope this answers your question.

You showed how easy it is to make. I appreciate you for that. When I first looked at the quilt, I thought, OH NO, too hard!! But, after reading the directions, I can do this easy peasy!!! Thanks again!
