Purple Lattice Quilt

I've been staying in where it's warm and cozy lately.  One of the things keeping me busy is piecing a new quilt.  I started with a plan (from Missouri Star Quilt Company) and some fabric.
 
The block is made up of solid squares and triangle-squares. 
 

This quilt called for twelve of these big blocks.  When sewn side by side and row to row, the pattern appears.  I really like how easy Missouri Star Quilt patterns and videos are to follow.
 


I'm ready to sandwich now and start quilting. 



I'm planning on machine quilting the interior and hand quilting the borders. 
 
I have to admit I think I like the piecing part of quilt making a little better than the quilting part.  Anyone else feel the same??
 
Thanks for stopping by!  Linking to:

This is a lovely quilt. The fabrics and colours are gorgeous. Though I love piecing a quilt, I also love to quilt as well.

The colours you have picked go very well together. I am really impressed by the pattern that emerges from the light and dark!

Your quilt is gorgeous...I quilt wall hangings but I don't have the patience to do a full quilt...Love the color combination...Great job.

I like piecing so much more than quilting. I put it down to struggling with my home machine. I am desperate to get a machine with a long arm and more harp space.
You have made a lovely job of the top.
