Blogger's Quilt Festival 2017: Entry #1 A-mazed!

My first entry for the Blogger's Quilt Festival 2017 is "A-Mazed!". During my first year as an Island Batik Ambassador, I able to start designing with Island Batik fabrics catalogs.  A-Mazed! was one of my first quilts I designed with Island Batik Fabrics and was first released for the Island Batik Fall/Winter 2016 Catalog. The quilt measures 59" x 59" when completed. The fabrics used in this picture are from the Island Batik "Drizzle" Collection.

A-Mazed! 59" x 59"
This amazing quilt may look complicated but it really it isn't hard at all.  This modern pieced pattern uses a combination of half square triangles and flying geese. There are four different blocks that you make from the half square triangles and flying geese units. For this quilt, I used the following Bloc_LocⓇ Rulers Half Square Triangle Ruler - 4 1/2” or larger
Bloc_Loc Rulers® Flying Geese Ruler - 3 1/2” x 6 1/2”. 

Example of the first block below:

Block 1 - Example
This was a fun quilt to design in EQ7.  I would play with the blocks and the colors until they flowed together.  I love to play with colors a lot with my designing, here is a couple of alternate color schemes. 

Alternate #1

Alternate #2

Alternate #3

I hope you enjoyed my introduction to A-Mazed! An amazing quilt that looks complicated but really it is not.
