    Labyrinth with Flowers?

    I have been inspired by the Labyrinth quilts on this board and have decided to make one. Here are a few of my choices, tell me what you think.


    The Labyrinth in this pattern uses a light and dark fabric for the actual maze and white for the top and black for the depth. I picked three sets of fabrics. A leafy fabric for the dark and a light flowery green for the light; another flowery fabric and a dark leafy green batik; a multi blue fabric with dragon flies and other bugs for the light and a purple (Patrick Loose) for the dark. I have place a black strip on the dark fabric as the black must be the darkest fabric. The white is not real white, it's sort of, off white.

    Which set do you like the best? I might make a block out of each set and see which one I like the best. I do like the buggy one real well lol.

    I just finished the Labyrinth Walk quilt and used Stonehenge non-floral fabrics. will be interested to see your take on it with florals. It's a fun quilt to make but take their suggestion about labels of all cut pieces to heart as it makes it easy to pick up the right piece when you need it.

    Wow, this is tough....I like all of them; but I would just have to use the green floral with the darker green batik in the center photo.....probably because I love earth tones the best. All will look wonderful. I hope that you show a photo of the combination you decide upon. I will wait with great anticipation for the finished product as well.

    I too am a purple lover so there's my vote. But really they all look good. I too have not seen this quilt made with florals so would be anxious to see it when you are all done. Please share with us so we can drool.

    labyrinth Walk

    I finished one block, the A block. I had to see if the fabric choices would work. I think it did, I can see dimension.

    All the strips have to be marked, I only cut enough for one block, just in case it didn't work. I wish the purple could have been just a shade lighter, but never mind, I like it.
