78. Free Motion Quilting Garden Maze, #419

Here's a fun geometric quilting design for this cold winter day!

Garden Maze was inspired by random labyrinth hedge mazes, and after reading more about them, I'm definitely see even more possibilities for new designs. This is also a straight line variation of Foundation Puzzle, so if you'd like to try this with wiggly lines, definitely click here to check out that other design.

Let's learn how to quilt it!

The first step to Garden Maze is to break down the space with straight lines stitched randomly all over your quilting space. I usually ended up with triangles, but really any shape works so long as the lines are straight.

The second step is to echo inside each open space with a straight line spiral. I filled up the space completely with the spiral, then travel stitched to get back out.

However, this isn't the only way you can quilt this design! You can eliminate all the travel stitching by simply leaving more space in the spirals. Don't be afraid to change up the design and make it work for you!

Let's go quilt,
