squared (a finished quilt, and a giveaway!)


It’s so fun to have a finished quilt! It feels like it’s been a long time – my time these days has been taken up with home showings, appraisals, inspections… and of course lots of cleaning. Not so much fun, so it’s even more fun than usual to have a new quilt to admire.


And oh man, this one is one I love looking at! I’ve collected little pieces of these Maze and Vale prints, which are all hand printed in Australia by Leslie Keating. She periodically sells little sample packs (sign up for her newsletter to be alerted to when they’re available, but beware, they go fast!), and I grabbed a few here and there along with a few panels of my favorite prints, and recently I felt I finally had enough variety to make up a quilt out of all Maze and Vale prints.


I made up a bunch of squares of a variety of sizes, alternating the Maze and Vale prints with a solid white. I talked a bit more about putting it together in my previous post about this quilt.


All along though, I kept dreaming about the perfect backing fabric, namely one of Leslie’s drop cloths (which she also cuts and offers on her site as artwork). I bugged her about buying one more times than I should have, and even though she said the fabric she uses for a drop cloth wouldn’t be cozy or soft for a quilt back, I still couldn’t get it out of my head. I probably should have stopped, but really, I was pretty obsessed. And finally Leslie agreed to do her last printing in her old studio using a softer piece of cloth for the drop cloth.


It was even better than I imagined, and when I received it I spent lots of time studying it and photographing it.


I just love all these overlapping images!


And now this quilt is truly two sided! I can’t thank Leslie enough for this gorgeous backing for my quilt!


But wait! Leslie has a little something for you too. She’s selected these 5 panels for one lucky winner (they happen to be some of my favorites as well!).


Leave a comment here and I’ll select a winner on Thursday. This giveaway is open to all. Please, one comment per person. (Don’t worry if you don’t see your comment immediately – it may need to be approved on my end and I’ll go through and do that periodically.)

UPDATE: A winner has been selected! Random.org has selected #487, Jackie Carpenter, who said “I’m so glad you got that quilt back- it is out of this world and spot-on, just-right for this quilt! Well done. Inspiring!”

Thanks to all for your wonderful comments and for taking the time to leave a comment. A big congrats to Jackie – I hope you’ll love these beautiful Maze & Vale panels!


A huge thank you to Leslie for creating such gorgeous fabrics, and for being so generous!

    First of all I feel your pain with the getting ready to move details. I didn’t buy a home, so missed the fun part, but the last time I moved, I had lived in that house for 12 years! The longest I had ever lived anywhere. It really took a toll on my emotions. The quilt is lovely. How sweet to have one that you have made of little bits and pieces of fabric that you were able to squirrel away.

    I’d love to have the panels for my stash. Thanks to you and to Leslie for the chance.

    Oh, by the way, what are those stacks of rocks in the background of your pics?

    I have recently returned to quilting after not quilting to find my tastes totally changed. I went from a Civil War reproduction fabric lover to wanting as little colour as possible.

    Your quilt is unbelievably beautiful. Those fabrics are amazing. Because I cannot buy much fabric, I have been using mostly white and some solids to make quilts. To win these fabrics would be wonderful.

    Thanks to you both for the opportunity to win–and thanks more to you both for the inspiration. Have a happy day!

    These are terrific fabrics! And I just love your quilt. I like the way the fabrics disappear and reappear from far away. They fade in and out.

    I was lucky to see Maze & Vale at the craft show in Melbourne recently. The fabric is stunning, the patterns fresh and new. I had to buy a couple of little pieces?? I’ve decided my Xmas present this year will be a block printing workshop at Maze & Vale.

    I love Leslie’s work too. I collected a few sample packs etc over a couple of years and, once I had enough, I made a special quilt for my daughter. It is my very favourite quilt. I’d love some new fabrics from her! Juliex
