Basket Lattice is an intriguing design. It is a traditional design, but has been made several different ways over the years. It was first published by Ladies' Art Company in the early 1920's, then updated by Sharon Newman in "Treasures from Yesteryear, Book 2," in 1995.
Sheri Pape has updated the pattern using fabric strip sets. It does require partial seams on all the blocks, however this is really quite easy and becomes routine after the first couple of rows are assembled.
The pattern is excellent for use with Fat Quarter or Fat Eighth fabric assortments, or can also be made from 2 1/2" strips (Jelly Rolls).
Directions are given for making either a 22" square sampler wall hanging, or the 58" x 70" lap quilt. However, any size quilt can easily be made by simply repeating the block units. A great scrap quilt, and one that always draws questions on how it's made.
Our sample photos are made using a variety of Japanese Taupe prints and yarn-dyed fabrics. The background fabric is a Serenity print with fern leaf design in Charcoal. It is available below in the related products category. 2 yards is needed for the Lap quilt (including binding), more if you add a border or multiply the design into a larger quilt.
