Wednesday Working – Starting Labyrinth Quilt

The weather here has still been not so good so we’re still doing indoor activities. Last week Heather and I attended a quilting class at the local sewing center and now we’re working on our quilts. The class is a total of three days and so far we’ve done two of them. The final class is in a week. The first step is to cut all the strips which I’ve done. There are a lot of pieces for this one and here they all are stacked and labeled on my cutting table:

That took a long time to do, but now I can start sewing the strips together. The first step is to add some triangles to the ends of some strips:

These are stacks of five for the main block type. I still have some dark strips to add the end triangles to before I can assemble the first five blocks.

That’s it for this week. I hope to have a completed set of blocks by next time. If you need me, I’ll be at the sewing machine.

    Just like LEGO models – sort, stack, assemble! Er, except for that sewing machine thingy 🙂

    That sure looks like a lot of work, with likely a lot of frustration thrown in. Hope all goes without a hitch.
