Why Viking? you wonder. Well, our family lived for some years in the very North of Scotland, just where the Vikings landed. We're big hearty people, and we identified strongly with those Vikings, whether we have any in our family tree or not!
As soon as I saw this fabric from Timeless Treasures I knew I had to have some. Unfortunately I went overboard and bought enough for several quilts! Now we're waiting for the birth of a little boy, it seemed a good time to get it out and make him a quilt.
I decided I wanted to showcase the print, but a little bit differently. The pattern I used is called
Baby Lattice Quilt and is in the Moda Bake Shop. I seriously underestimated the time it would take to fussy cut the Vikings in their longboats and the map in the correct orientation. Hours!
I can certainly recommend this pattern, specially for charm squares in a non-directional print!
It went together quickly, I only started it on Saturday. I'll be sandwiching and quilting over the weekend.
Here are two closeup pictures of some of the detail:
