A-mazing quilt

Try as I might I couldn't think of a less self congratulatory title for this quilt so that is the name it has.

Directions for making it are up on the Moda BakeShop site today.

I almost didn't think this quilt would happen, the first lot of fabric has disappeared in the mail black hole, the replacement took ages to arrive as part of the recent mail delays and when it did arrived I had just got a promotion at work that ate up a lot of my mid-week quilting time for the first few weeks.

But it is done and I was really lucky to be able to take the pictures for the post at Hedgend Maze in Healsville. We got there early in the morning pon one of the lastr wintery weekends when the mist was still rising.

Some of the initial pictures were taken from the lookout (can you believe not every maze has one of these?) and this one is the result of me tossing the quilt onto the edge of the maze. Apparently I thought that the maze was not as far away as it was and it would artfully drape all by itself. Luckily there was a stick nearby to assist with the rescue.

So after the pictures were done we had a game of frisbee golf, mini, golf, a wanter through the maze and a puzzle through the coloured maze.

A pretty great morning, all done by 11:00am!

I finished up my maze last weekend, and you can see a photo on my blog here: http://floribunda.blogspot.com

By the way, my hubby discovered that if you change just one square from "path" to "hedge", the whole thing can be quilted in one pass with nothing left out!

Thanks for the great pattern!
