    Very pretty looks so bright and cheerful. Still waiting for mine to arrive. Just to let you all know elisabrat ended up in the hospital Sunday night. She is on the road to recovery and hopefully will be home this weekend sometime. Talked to her today and she is feeling much better.

    She who dies with the most fabric, didn't sew fast enough!

    My partner hasn't posted photos yet, so since I have lots of them, including a couple progress photos, I thought I'd share....

    This is the biggest pieced project I've done so far, and boy did I pick a doozy! It's not blocks. I used an online random maze generator & just pieced it from strips. Now Dusty wants me to make him a duvet cover like this!

    Thank you ladies!! I used 1-1/2" strips for the walls and 2-1/2" strips for the paths. There was LOTS of figuring, and I had to go back for more of the path fabric, but I have a little bit left now that I'll find something else to use it for. As you see in the first progress photo, the piecing was interesting. I had to leave enough seam unsewn to attach the piece next to it, and there were a couple areas, where there are lots of turns, that I had to piece that together as a block & then attach the section. Lots of attach a full strip and cut it off to size later too.

    Here's the site I used to generate the maze. I just played with it until I got the size I wanted, then refreshed until I got a pattern I liked.

    If you're collecting BOM's from Fat Cat, the April ones are up! I can see this month's becoming a table runner or a wall hanging all by itself!

    I was the uber lucky recipient of this fantastic maze throw! I was so overwhelmed when I received it that I carried it around the house with me for over 30 mins!!

    My sons have been on spring break and have trashed the room that it goes with so I haven't posted any pics. Will do so tomorrow after the cleaning lady comes.

    Thank you soooooooo very much again. I scored the golden prize this time!
