Friday Links :: Quilt, Tube Labyrinth, Mosaics

Lately I’ve been a bit obsessed with a Fat Eighth Frenzy quilt. I think it would be fun to make a quilt that’s quick (yes!) and easy (woohoo!) and it uses larger pieces of fabric but it’s not just boring old squares blocks of fabric. I have some favourite fabrics that I’m hoarding just coz they’re pretty but maybe I should actually make something with them. And using fat eighths, I would still have some fabric left over to stroke and look at the pretty colours. ;-)

You should’ve asked. Even taking the kids out of the equation this is so familiar. {via}

I sometimes spot an enamel labyrinth design on London’s Underground stations. This weekend, when I was walking through West Ham tube station, where there is a very prominent labyrinth, I finally decided to find out more. It turns out it is an artwork, called Labyrinth, and there is a labyrinth on every single Tube station. So now you too know what those labyrinths are all about and you can even take the Labyrinth challenge to spot them all, they’re actually numbered!
