Another Drunkards Path Quilt

I enjoyed making the red and cream quilt so much, that I decided that I would use the same pattern to make a wedding quilt for my niece, Nicole.  This one is queen sized.

I again made it scrappy because I am really trying to use up my stash.  Nicole said she liked olive green  so I incorporated that in the border.  I thought blue and green would make a nice color palette for the quilt.  I had fun with the custom quilting.IMG_0785IMG_0786IMG_0787On the back, I added some blocks I had made in an improvisational piecing class taught by Jackie Gehring.    Who says the back should be boring?IMG_0792 IMG_0793IMG_0796Congratulations to Nicole and Josh!  They were married November 15, 2014.  And I’m happy to say the quilt was finished in time so that they could open it on their wedding day.IMG_0789

    • I’d be happy to help you out, Chris, but I didn’t use a pattern. It’s simply the Drunkard’s Path block (curved piecing) and the design is achieved by how you arrange the blocks. The blocks were 8″ square. I did use some acrylic templates made by Pepper Cory (Google her) to cut out the pieces. Once you get the curved piecing down (not hard with an 8″ block) it’s pretty simple. Pepper might even have a book she’s written on this block. She was at our guild for a workshop and is really into the Drunkard’s Path. For this red and white quilt, I switched the back ground pieces to dark (the reds) and the cream for the centers. I loved that I could use up a lot of fabrics in my stash. Good luck!
