Labyrinth Walk #2


Thought it was a perfect Sunday morning to take a drive and find some new photography spots for Gay’s Labyrinth Walk quilt.  She used shades of greys with a black background for this stunning quilt for her grandson’s graduation gift.  We first stopped at a park on the highway created by the Rainy River First Nations.  Think I’ll be stopping her more often over the summer as it greens up, love this little bridge.

I quilted Gay’s quilt with pebbles, water meander and diagonal lines.  I stitched in the ditch around all the seams to really emphasis the cool 3-D effect in this pattern.  I used Quilters Dream Blend batting and grey and charcoal So Fine thread.


Then we drove down to Barwick and discovered this cute lighthouse on the Rainy River. 


They also had a very nice dock so will definitely be coming back here too! 




  1. Great finish!!
    I will be honest ... I haven't been a fan of this pattern, but the combo of Gay's fabric/colour choices and your as-ever-amazing FMQing has me going oh wow ... how wonderful!

    You're finding some great photo spots in your new community!
    You must have some patient quilt holder-uppers to be able to get so many shots done.
    I agree, that first location is going to be amazing as things green up.
    Look at those beautiful reflections in such a little bit of water.

  2. That's amazing! I showed my engineering husband and he said, "Wow!"

  3. The geometric design is so've done a wonderful job of enhancing the quilt with your quilting....what inspiration.

  4. That is an amazing quilt and the Quilting really enhances the dimensional effect. The closer view laying on the dock is,so real, like you could step into it. Congrats to both of you!

  5. Kathy, it is immaculate quilting design to the particular top picture! It makes quilt even more deep and geometric! Like Eschers illusions)) Wonderful!

  6. Beautifully amazing! The piecing, the fabrics, your quilting, and also the photo layouts! ---"Love"

  7. Thanks for sharing. I’m embarrassed to say that I made this for one of my grandson’s, but I decided I love it too much to give it to him. Keeping it and planning on hand quilting it for me.
