Garden Path Quilt Blocks - Fujita Maze from McCall's Quilting Magazine.


Garden Path quilt block from McCall's Quilting. Pattern available online at : http://www.mccallsquilting.com/patterns/details.html?idx=15047

Also called "Fujita Maze".  The first two blocks Are done in Japanese Taupe fabrics. This is the first quilt I am making using Japanese Taupe fabrics. After making 30 blocks in a 5 x 6 layout (still to be sewn into a quilt top) I started on using some floral FQs I had laying around, as a maze is an age old garden design. Quite a different look with the very same block.




block details: Finishes at 14", center square is 6"

Here are some other Japanese Fabrics that I am using in the quilt. This are what some shop owners call "Top Shelf" Japanese Fabrics, as they are woven and not printed.  The top two fabrics are light taupes with some woven threads, they are very nubby and have a great texture.


The bottom two fabrics have much more woven design using multiple colors. I especially love the red and purple threads randomly places in the black fabric.
