    2 daughters, 2 quilts to make in 2 months!

    I decided around the first part of November that I would make a quilt for each daughter for Christmas. I didn't know if I could get them done in time but I did! They loved them so the numb fingers were worth it! I do the bindings by hand and the quilts are big, one is 72 x 72 and the other one is 90 x 110. I love the pattern so much and had enough fabric left from theirs that I'm now making one for myself, just had to buy more fabric for my backing. I figure that's a pretty good deal! The pattern is easy, it's called Labyrinth by Calico Carriage Quilt Designs.

    I fell in love with this pattern when I saw it in one of the Quilting catalogs, but didn't order it as I DON'T need another project right now. May have to change my mind.

    Beautiful quillts. You did a great job on them. Glad you had enough fabric to make yourself one.

    You really kept busy. I am sure you didn't spend quite as much time as I do with friend ripper as I do. You did a wonderful job. The quilts are beautiful.

    Are your fabrics from the Stonehenge collection? I have the pattern and several of the Stonehenge fabrics and it's on my list to start within the next few weeks. Yours are very pretty and now they have inspired me again.

    Yes, the fabrics are the Stonehenge collection. I absolutely love the fabrics, they all coordinate so well and are so soft, great to sew with, I highly recommend them! Some of the fabrics come in the wide 108" width which is what I used on the back of the quilts.

    Beautiful quilts. Love that labyrinth pattern. Your color choices are wonderful. Thank you for sharing.
    Desiderata (Max Ehrmann) - Walk placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
