38. Learn How to Quilt Basic Maze, #395

It's time to quilt! This fun little design came to me while designing the tote bag for my last Craftsy class Free Motion Fillers Volume 2. I wanted a super simple Edge to Center design that would have a nice texture, but also be easy to stitch. Basic Maze seemed to fit the bill perfectly:

Why basic maze? I actually considered calling this Ruler Stitch because the first line definitely looks like the marks on a ruler. But the inspiration for this particular design wasn't a ruler, but a scene in the movie Inception when Cobb is explaining the dream world to Ariadne. The second maze she designed was simply lines drawn in a box and the second I saw it, I knew I could stitch it!

Difficulty Level - Beginner.

Design Family - Edge to Center.

Of course, now that I've watched this video clip of Inception that's all I can think about. Time to pull out some hand work and dive into the world of dreams!

Let's go quilt,
