Garden Maze in Quilter’s World’s QUICK & EASY QUILTS (Special Interest Publication, Spring 2013)

Quick and Easy Quilts

Happy Friday, Friends!  I trust that all is well at your end.  I shall end this week by sharing with you another magazine featured quilt, “Garden Maze.”  You have already seen “In & Out.”  Garden Maze is my other quilt featured in Quilter’s World‘s Spring 2013 Special Interest Publication issue “Quilt & Easy Quilts”.

This design tends toward the contemporary look with the extensive use of white in the midst of traditional blocks.

Here are a few photos of Garden Maze.  As much as I love love love exploding colors all coming together, sometimes I do like the look of the soothing contrast of lots of white against just a little color:

The fabrics used in Garden Maze are from Pat Bravo’s  Modernology collection, designed for Art Gallery Fabrics.

Quilting was simple and minimal to fit the minimalistic feel of the overall quilt design.  I used my “Mark without Marking” method to quilt circles of different sizes all over the quilt.  Quilting was done with Aurifil Mako 50 Cotton threads over Hobbs Tuscany Silk Batting.
