I was able to carve out a couple of hours to work on the maze quilt this weekend. I didn’t actually keep track, but I think it was between 4 and 5 hours.
The white fabrics I will leave as strips in the places I can sew a longer piece in, or cut as needed. As I sewed, sometimes I needed the equivalent of one block, two pieces, three, or four. Fewer seams that way.
Here is the total progress as of Sunday evening! I’m so pleased with it. I was afraid the walls, with darks, brights, and lights in prints and solids, wouldn’t look so much like walls. I think it looks great, and I’m looking forward to making more rows, as I can.
Coming up, though, more of all my other projects going on right now.
- Circle quilts for my friend’s daughters – she’s getting more of the embroidery patches done for me.
- Plus sign quilt for my next grandchild – a girl who is coming anytime from early to mid-March. The top is complete, but I have to quilt and bind it.
- Doll clothes – I’m starting to get an inventory, but a few more outfits and samples are needed before I can open the Etsy store.
My full-time job sometimes gets in the way of my hobby! I’d much rather be sewing.
