Rita at Red Pepper quilts created a Labyrinth quilt a few years ago.  I liked it so much that I purchased the pattern to make it for myself. Well I waited a bit and found some fabric that suited and would make a fabulous gift. The fabric line I am using is called Gracie Girl by Riley Blake with a few extra pieces added to even things out. The background is white from Clothworks.

The blocks are great to show off the fabric and goes together easily with chain stitching and pressing. I had quite the assembly line going and was able to get 16 blocks done in two days of stitching. 

instructions even tell you how to press

Another day I made the sashing and with four hours of stitching, well make that closer to five and a half, the quilt was done.  What I best liked about this quilt was the fact that the instructions said how to press the block as you went.  I don't know about you but pressing is so important to me in the final product.  This way I had no humps and bumps in the quilt when it comes time for quilting.

And here is a small photo of the final quilt top.  I have it pressed and lint rollered, now to just buy the backing and take it to the long arm quilt lady to get quilted. Even better I have left over fabric that I can use in another project.
