Labyrinth Walk

I finished quilting this Labyrinth Walk quilt for my friend, Donna. It’s a big one! I love the colors and fabrics she chose. She wanted a custom job that would emphasize the 3D design.

That meant lots of ruler work. When the quilt was on the frame, the quilting hardly showed at all and at times it was difficult to see where I had been!

I even started asking myself if custom quilting was even worth it. And then I took it off the frame and placed it in my guest bed.

Yep. It was worth it!

This is not a quilt for the faint of heart. Donna thinks she’s a new quilter , but I think she did an awesome job!

By the way, this is what nearly a quarter million stitches looks like! Have a great day!

    This is the best example of the quilting I want on MY labyrinth quilt. I love it!

  2. I have always loved that pattern, but this version is especially cool. The colors and diagonal quilting make it look like you could just fall down into the crevasses!

    A beautiful quilt made even more wonderful with the quilting. I’ve looked at this pattern and have yet to try it. If I do, I will definitely be looking for someone who can do ruler work to do the quilting.
