    Help Please. Do you think there is enough contrast?

    I am starting a labyrinth walk quilt and am just not sure about the fabrics.

    I thought there was enough contrast but can't decide if it will be OK or not as it grows. Here is the 1st set of blocks.

    Any thoughts out there?

    Wow. I have just started and used purple shades between black and white and contrast was my problem as well.
    They look great.

    I think they look great! Can't wait to see the finished project.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    The pattern was in Quilt Magazine designed by Chris Florence & Emily Sirkin. I'm not sure what month my SIL sent it to me because she knew i wanted to do one of these. So far I can't believe how simple it has been (be sure to label pieces as you cut) I am excited can't wait to get it done but I have some other projects going that have to get done so I am working on it in between. I'll post pictures as I go.

    I think there is a lot of contrast. Don't worry! You did very well!!!

    I think it will be wonderful! Mine is at the LAQ now and I can't wait to get it back http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...e-t219581.html

    I learned a lot about getting the depth correct with this cube quilt I did - http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...r-t221088.html and threw away many a cube that just did not pop!

    Please post when done and be sure to download the corrections. I cut as I went along and the second block was much harder for me!

    Good luck!

    Apparently there were mistakes in the magazine pattern. I cannot find the corrections page on the Quilt mag website, nor can I find a free download of the pattern there. Thought I heard the pattern was so popular the designer is coming out with a printed pattern for it to sell.

    Edit: I searched the website in a different way and DID find the correction sheet for this pattern. Here is a link to the PDF:
    http://www.quiltmag.com/resources/la...rn-correction/
    The corrections are in red.

    Can you photocopy the block? That will show you in black and white how the contrast shows. I think it's good because you have white and black at each end of the spectrum and a light and medium grey in between.

    I think it is great. Is this pattern as difficult as it looks?
