    truckers quilt

    In June I asked about what pattern to use for a trucker's quilt. He saw the Labyrinth Walk and decided that was the one. I finally got the monster finished - made the mistake of quilting on my DSM and I wouldn't do it again. Thanks for looking.

    Very nice, I am sure it will be loved. I agree with you on not quilting a very large quilt on your DSM. I did my Stitchers Garden on mine and it was a job.

    I can imagine how much work that must have been! This is the first Labyrinth Walk I've seen done in something other than neutrals and I really like it - you did a wonderful job.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    I love seeing that pattern done in other than black. grey and white. Although I am going to make mine in those colors.
