Here is another quilt I designed a few years ago using the Drunkard's Path block that I pulled down from the shelf to put on my Etsy site. I was given six fabrics and challenged to make a quilt. The colors inspired me to think of a sunset, hence the Drunkard's Path blocks.
Because I wanted the blocks to be asymmetrical, each block is individually drafted. They provide the "sunset" background for my tree. This was the first (and only) time I had made a Drunkard's Path block until my current project.
I am especially pleased with the applique stitching. I satin-stitched around the tree and then highlighted the stitching by quilting with a triple stitch.
Circular blocks add movement to our otherwise square quilts. What can your imagination do with a Drunkard's Path block?
Until next time,
