The weather has been pretty nasty here all week so the following pictures are the best I could get between rain showers. I finished the labyrinth quilt earlier this week.
This was made using a raw edge reverse appliqué technique. I used fusible web only for the center flower section. As I mentioned earlier, this created a mountain in the middle! It remained as a UFO for a number of years. I decided it was time to finish it or pitch it. I cut an 18″ circle of poly batting and another 30″ circle of pot batting and spray basted them to the back of the labyrinth. Then I loaded it onto the frame with a full layer of Warm and White batting. I started the quilting by outlining the black. I went back and quilted each narrow black area with a bit of a scribble.
It wasn’t easy quilting through the three layers of batting at the center but it did take up the fullness in that area. It is far from perfect but I am glad that I finished it. It won’t win any awards but it looks pretty good from a distance. I will probably hang it in my cubicle at work.
