Cut and Shuffle With Alycia

Alycia Carman, who blogs over at AlyciaQuilts, very kindly agreed post about my book Cut and Shuffle Quilts. You can see her post here today. Thank you, Alycia!

Her boys talked her into choosing the Labyrinth block and quilt to make. Here are Alycia's blocks so far. I love her cute dots with that navy! Alycia's version is going to be very striking - gorgeous! I love her strong graphic fabric choices.
Alycia's Labyrinth Blocks

Labyrinth is one of six quilts in Cut and Shuffle Quilts. All the blocks are easy to make. Start with a parent block called the Block Mama, slice it and dice it, rearrange the parts, and sew them back together nine-patch style. Here's the Labyrinth block:

And here's the Labyrinth quilt from the book:
Labyrinth, 60" x 72"
Cut and Shuffle Quilts is available from AQS Publishing, Amazon, or you can order a signed copy directly from me ($24.95 plus $2.72 postage, USA only. Leave a comment with your email address and I'll get back to you)

Thanks, Alycia, for your enthusiasm about my book!


  1. When I saw the labyrinth design in your book Jan, the first thought I had was, Wow would a kid have fun with that! It would also appeal to fans of Minecraft... like my own son. Whoop whoop for you and Alycia!

  2. I saw Alycia's version on her post. It's going to be a fun quilt.
