On Point Lattice Quilt Tutorial {Featuring Wee Wander by Sarah Jane Studios}

Hi all!  
Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Sarah Jane's new fabric line Wee Wander.  
Today I'm excited to be sharing a tutorial for the lattice quilt I made for her booth at fall market
 It's a simple design and an easy quilt to whip up.  

While I used yardage for the original quilt, I was able to simplify the directions (and thus eliminate fabric waste) by using only one complete fat quarter set (21 prints) for the pdf.  Follow the simple cutting layout diagrams and you will be able to get all the squares you need to make a large throw just like the one I made!


Sarah's fabric are available NOW through on-line retailers and brick-and-mortar stores!

Wee Wander Fabric Collection by designer Sarah Jane Studios

True to her other lines, Wee Wander is filled with whimsical illustrations depicting childhood play; featuring trees, horses, deer, children, leaves, and (my favorite!!) fireflies.

As you can see all the fabrics play well together as a collection.
Once again, Sarah has done a wonderful job infusing beautiful color and design into her fabric collection. I can honestly say that even after sewing with this line for market I still want to sew with it some more! That's saying something, isn't it?  Yep, It's that cute!!

Don't forget to check out Sarah's blog weekly to see what others are making for the Wee Wander Blog Tour!

***I tried my best to make this tutorial as accurate as possible, so please let me know if you find any errors.  I will try to keep this post updated regularly with any changes, if needed.***
 
Wee Wander Complete Fat Quarter Bundle Available From:
Westwood Acres  (along with a Coordinating Solids Bundle)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
More Details:
The super simplified version of the tutorial is this:
Cut 70 - 7" squares  and turn on point, cut 26 HST's for sides, and approx. 35 white sashing strips cut at 1.5" by WOF.

In the PDF there are two cutting layouts for your fat quarters: one for the small scale prints (Diagram A) and one for the large scale prints (Diagram B). Diagram B will show you the layout needed to cut squares on the bias so your larger scale prints will be headed in the right direction when they are turned on point.  I would suggest making a simple template out of paper (cut a 7" square in half diagonally) so you can position the HST's correctly on your FQ.

Is there any fabric left over after making this quilt from a fat quarter bundle? I want to make a full size quilt instead of the twin.

Would this fit a twin bed? In pictures on Sarah's blog she has it on a bed and it is hard to tell.

I am making this quilt now. Can you tell me your secret in making the blocks line up row by row with the sashing? l

@Lizziebeth

I pin each row taking great care to make sure that everything is matched up. Lots and lots of pinning!

@Sarah W.

The pattern calls for an entire FQ bundle of Wee Wander. If you follow the pattern directions you will be able to make a twin sized quilt.

There is very little waste (only scraps) left over from a FQ bundle after making this quilt. You will need to purchase more fabric to yield a bigger quilt.
