Labyrinth Quilt Design

Mary Simpson has a labyrinth on her property so she has  been thinking about choosing a labyrinth design as the basis for  a quilt block design.  Her labyrinth near Glencoe, Ontario,  is a 5-circuit cretan (classical) design outlined in trees and shrubs:
John Ridder,<>  labyrinth designer, says “there have been a few [labyrinth] quilts made over the years, although I dont know if they have been offered in a pattern. Attached is a photo of the quilt auctioned off at the 2010 TLS Gathering in New Harmony. The blocks were all the same pattern, simply arranged differently.  Block was designed by Ben Nicholson.
