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.

Nicole’s Quilt

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

A Quilt for Me!

Pam’s drunkards path quilt

Being a professional machine quilter, I do a lot of quilting.  But rarely are the quilts mine.  I finish other people’s quilts.  I started this quilt way back in July, I think.  I start LOTS of quilts.  They don’t always get finished.  This one did!  And it is just for me!  I wanted something warm to cuddle up in when I’m watching TV.

It make it extra warm, I added wool batting and backed it with a cuddly fleece.IMG_0851

You may recognize this pattern from an earlier post.  The setting is a variation using the curved drunkard’s path block.  All the fabrics were from my stash, so this was stash busting!   Those cream colored “paths” were just screaming for some feathers.IMG_0844 Of course since it’s my quilt, I quilted my name in the center.

It looks great on my new sofa.  And yes, it is very warm.IMG_0836
