Basting Animal Maze

Perks to working at a quilt store! I can baste on tables! 
This is Animal Maze for my little nephew. 
I love mazes and think it's nice to combine a maze into an I Spy kind of quilt. 
I designed this. First on graph paper - then on the an excel sheet so I could keep track of what I was cutting and what colors I was using. I did have a hard time figuring out the color of the maze. I wanted it to stand out and there are so many colors in this quilt! Decided on Kona Chinese Red. 
All kinds of fun is to be had with this one! :)

Lesson in Garment Sewing

 Arianne (on the left) gave Emily and me a garment sewing lesson!
We both brought in a shirt and Arianne drew up a pattern and taught us how to make it!
I haven't finished mine yet but Emily got hers done and it looked good!
Sewing garments is fairly complicated and laborious.
I think I might just stick to quilting for now! ;)
