They say to strike while the iron is hot, and so I did. Just like that a new quilt and quilt pattern has emerged from this week's creative burst! I think it may be something to do with the relaxed holiday mood, but rest assured that is soon to come to an end.
The new quilt and pattern has been called the Labyrinth Quilt Pattern,
a name which requires no further explanation.
I have really enjoyed working with these boldly graphic and colorful prints (especially the larger scale dots and circles) and have been pleasantly surprised by the overall balance of the colors.
I have quilted the Labyrinth Quilt with minimal straight lines, although this doesn't represent minimum time and effort. With 48 stitching lines each 65 inches long that would amount to 3120 inches or almost 80 meters of slow stitching and quilt wrangling. I like the numbers thing!
And more stripey binding. This time a grey stripe from Sarah Fielke's fabric collection "From Little Things."
To create your own Labyrinth Quilt you can find the quilt pattern in my Etsy Store. The pattern is comprehensive and includes step by step tutorials, including photographic images for piecing and pressing seam allowances for all of the patchwork units and sashings that make up this quilt.
Thank you for stopping by! I am stepping away from the sewing machine this weekend; the knitting needles are calling!Rita
