X marks the spot! The Lattice quilt block is really gorgeous and super simple to make for any beginner in quilting. It is widely known as X quilt block!
Cutting Instructions for the Lattice quilt block
Always be careful of the colors you are choosing. They can easily mess up your block (or quilt) or on the contrary, make it shine! I prefer to make a test block before cutting pieces for the whole quilt. It makes me more confident to continue and make the whole thing.
And always remember FINISHED SIZE means the size it will be in a completed quilt. The measurements given already have the ¼ inch allowance included.
Finished Block Size
*SQ = Square/Squares
Cut 4 SQ from Dark fabric
Cut 8 sq from Light Fabric
Names of the block
A quilt of variety, Cotton boll, Five cross, Five crosses, Lovely patchwork, The quint five quilt
Just by changing the direction of the corner squares or better add some different fabrics, you can have a totally different looking quilt block. You can use the same tutorial to make these blocks, too. I am sure some of those will be a separate tutorial, just because they look really beautiful.

Welcome to Zarkadia Quilting Co.!
Quilts are the most intimate and personal of objects. They connect us with each other to the primal ground of the bed-the place we spend half our lives; where we are born, sleep, have sex, and die; the place where we replenish ourselves and dream our dreams; the place of nurture and healing, where we retreat in sickness and frailty; and the place where we receive the comfort and care of those who love us.
