In August 2017 Daughter-in-law very politely hinted for a Labyrinth Walk quilt by posting this request on my Facebook wall.
I’ve seen these in different colours several times but it looked daunting. I however still went ahead and ordered the pattern, with it not being available as a PDF download, I thought it would never get to darkest Africa with the criminal elements in our postal service but it did. It was somewhat of a disappointment in that it was a black and white pattern which seems like it is simply printed whenever needed to sell. I can therefore not understand it not being made available as a PDF.
Looked at the pattern for days on end, trying to make a colour picture in my head but I am obviously not that creative.
Finally got hold of fabric but these were left unattended for several more months while I got to play with my newly acquired longarm.
While waiting for online classes on FM quilting to be done on the longarm I got bored and remembered about the “ready to go” quilt pattern and fabric and started cutting. The pattern, I must give due credit, was typed in an extremely user friendly manner and pretty soon I had almost all my strips needed cut. I went with green for finding two (dark and light) colours of large quantities in our little city was somewhat of a mission. So it was never about the colour I prefer but about the colour that would be available.
Well one strip or piece at a time and my first block is starting to take on shape.
