FOR those who want something different again and who do not
mind fitting around corners to achieve the results we suggest
"Arabic Lattice." The originator of this old pattern must have had
a flair for the romantic as witnessed by the name as well as an
aptitude for work, as the little blocks are really difficult to piece.
Each finishes 5 1/2 inches square if seams are allowed extra and
they must be pieced in A and B style to set together alternately for
the all-over pattern. These blocks in a continuing row turn an
intriguing corner as well as making a single repeat border that is
A pieced center of 30 or 42 little blocks, within a wide band
of plain color for fancy quilting, then a pieced border and a plain to
finish would make a stunning quilt.
Material Estimate: Forty-two of the 5 1/2 inch blocks would
finish into a center about 33x38 inches-6 blocks wide by 7 long.
This center plus a 12-inch border of light blue, then a 5 1/2-inch
pieced border, and last a 3-inch border of green, will make the
completed quilt top 74x79 inches. This requires 5 yards of light
blue and 4 1/2 yards of green, or a total of 9 1/2 yards of material.
For the intricately pieced center, lay out in straight lines for
quilting and repeat the tulip block No. 633 or Snowflake No. 279,
for quilting the wide plain border.
