    Finished piecing Labyrinth

    I bought this material a year ago not knowing exactly what to create with it. I just knew I loved it and would wait until the "right" creation came to mind. I almost was afraid to get started on a project because what if I chose the wrong one to use it on!!! Have any of you ever been overly protective of your material?? Please say you have!

    Any way....here's the result. Thanks for looking...hope you enjoy. It was also the first time I ever used black as my background. Stepped outside my box on that one! Glad I did!

    Oh that is pretty! And YES to your question. I walked into a QS in the spring and was stopped in my tracks by a print. I got a few yards plus backing border and several contrasting prints. It's in a clear container so I can see it anytime and dream of what it will become!

    Your quilt is beautiful - and I have also bought fabric that I just "had to have" and STILL haven't found it's rightful home. But I know that when I DO come across it's intended pattern, I'm going to love it!

    I have, too. I have about 60 solid FQ given to me as a gift (all different colors) about 4 years ago. Each time I think I have found the pattern to use them on, I can't do it. One of these days... Your quilt is fantastic. It's just right.

    beautiful quilt, great colours.
    I'm glad you stepped outside the box, the black works perfect with the other colours

    It's beautiful...I can almost smell the fall leaf pile burning! So pretty.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    This is so pretty, you did a great job sewing it. I have original fabric from the 1930's and can't bare to cut into it yet. I keep finding patterns to use it on, but never do. Maybe one day.....
