UPDATE BELOW-Hello Cuties! Here is a 42x58 Maze quilt top I just made. It is a donation quilt for CASA. I still have to quilt it, bind and label. The child can play the maze game or I Spy with a friend searching all through the little blocks.

I had asked Marge a member of our quilt group for this pattern. She not only gave me the pattern but cut out all the 2 1/2 inch squares, all 400 of them! She knew I’d make it for the children so it’s a joint project. The black strips I cut but I’m sure black squares could be used. Strips eliminated sewing smaller patches and make the maze look more divided.
Also, the beginning and ending called for only the 4 1/2 inch blocks. I added the arrows (flying geese units) to mark the entrance and exit.
I think it’s interesting and hope you do too. Have a nice day and stay healthy! ❤️Toogie

Update- I tried quilting this with a larger meander than the Blush and Bashful quilt. You may remember this fabric I used for the backing. It was leftover from these purse & checkbook projects. I was lucky to have enough because I like it for this quilt back, too. Just wanted to show the finish. I hope you can see.

ThanksPam I hope so. I would like to make one for my own grandchild but I can do that anytime. This is for part of a child’s Christmas.

This is awesome Toogie, you amaze me on how many quilts you make. The child who gets this will have lots of fun. I just did it and got it straight away, but that's because I'm doing it from a distance. Having it on the floor I'm sure would take a lot longer. Love Chris

This one went fast because I didn’t have to cut all those squares! The maze is what the quilt is made for, but I can see a little boy playing with his Matchbox cars through the maze or playing I Spy from the squares, with a friend. So many possibilities.

First of all congratulations to the 2 of you. This turned out to be a great project. At first look I realized it was a maze but I followed the the dark strips only to find out that there was no beginning and end. After reading your comment about the arrow (smart to add them) I found my way around. One should always read first. Great job Toogie

That is amazing! All the work and the placement...the cutting of the squares would take me a lifetime!

You’re so funny, but it does take a while. My husband and I cut quiet a few that I want to turn into a granny square quilt. It will take a lot more though because they are so small and I want it bed size. I still want to make all my kids & grands a quilt.

Oh my! The fortunate child who receives this cheerful quilt will have hours of fun. You two make a super team and I hope you continue to work on more projects.

Oh you know I will! I’ll tell Marge what you said. If she’d rather cut, I’d rather sew or piece.

Such a lovely idea. I love the colours, it looks so bright. Children will love it!
I made some maze patterns with a marble inside. I think I could use the same pattern for a quilt if you don't mind me copying the maze idea.

I’d love to see your maze and no I don’t mind at all. In fact I welcome you to, that’s what sharing ideas are all about! If I make another I don’t think I would use the 4 1/2 inch start/finish. I used them this time because Marge had them included ( the fish and penguins). I do like the arrows so I’d keep them in.

Lovely work and a labour of love by the pair of you. There are some v lucky people who receive some of these quilts

I’m sure it took Marge longer to cut all these than for me to sew them up. I think she had the harder work as cutting is my least favorite part. If I want to continue piecing, Sharon cut out about 5 QOV tops and sent home with me. She said she knew I’d get them done!😳I didn’t tell her I’m still trying to precut my ‘gave to me’ fabrics.

Thanks Sarah, even though it wasn’t my idea, I loved the one Marge did. I failed to get a picture of it before we loaded them up for CASA, so later I had to ask for the pattern. It’s easy to figure out by looking at the picture because all blocks are 2 1/2 inch.
