    I just completed this top. It is a combination garden maze, double wedding ring, and baltimore album. Don't get too excited about the Baltimore Album part, they are cheater blocks I found on the clearance rack of my local quilt shop. $2.00 per yard. And I knew just what to do with them. Now it's off to the quilter. :P

    Very nice the way the pinks and blues shade from light to dark around the centres.

    The strange part is, I had the sashing almost done before I even found the cheater blocks. I was going to put something entirely different in the centers. But the cheaters were the right size, right color, right emotion and $2 a yard. Now that's karma.

    No, I was leaning over the railing of the stairs looking down into my foyer.

    Cheater or not, although I don't call them that, they are perfect with the rest. You made a beautiful quilt and to me that is the important part.
