quilt in process : labyrinth design drawn - the hard way
Fri, Mar 8 2013 10:43 AM
I'm in the process of designing the quilting for a top I just completed. I want the center of the quilt to be a labyrinth design. I finally got the design onto freezer paper. I needed to have 5 concentric circles, smallest 8" diameter, largest 33" diameter. I tried the old string & pencil method. I must be more uncoordinated than I thought because my lines were all over the place. I wanted a 2.5" "pathway" between each circle, so I got to rummaging around the hoard and found a 2.5" square template. I wound up drawing the whole thing with that square template. Who'da thunk you could draw perfect circles with a straight edge template? It took awhile but worked like a charm. Once I had the circles drawn, I erased the parts I didn't want to make the labyrinth pathways. Next, I'll cut the sewing lines with an exacto and iron the freezer paper onto my quilt top. Looking forward to having the whole day tomorrow to work on it!
