A Little Bit Drunk

I've always loved all the variations of the Drunkard's Path block. So when I came across this quilting book, I knew I had to have it!


This is the first quilt I want to make...I really love this one!


And I think this might be the second...although I know neither of these is happening anytime soon. I must finish up some other projects before I start anything new (famous last words! LOL)


And I just had to share a few pictures of the maple tree in our front yard. This morning the sun was shining on it, and with the blue sky behind, it was just so pretty! I love seeing the tree's shadow on the grass too! :0)

  1. I haven't done a drunkard's path in a very long time - would make a great sew along for next year. Lovely tree - ours are almost bare now.

  2. Neat quilts, I have not done curves yet. And I love the red color on your maple tree.

  3. Love Drunkard's Path quilts. Taught my Mom how to do the curved seams in Drunkard's Path and she made me a quilt from it. So I've made a few sample blocks, but never a whole quilt. : )

  4. Ha! That title caught my eye and i thought. ..you! The one and only time I did a drunkards path, i did it by applique. Curves scare me. Maybe...someday.

  7. The book gives the drunkard path an updated look that I like. A very pretty tree to have in one's front yard.

  8. I've only made one Drunkard's Path quilt - and used the Curvemaster foot, which I HIGHLY recommend! Not affiliated just a happy customer. I don't think I'd attempt those curves without it!
    Lovely tree - ours are dropping leaves faster every day!

  9. Beautiful tree! We went to my daughter's house this afternoon and along the way we saw some beautiful trees. They were all yellows and oranges and shone like the sun!

  10. Drunkard's Path is a quilt/block I've always wanted to try too. Those are both great layouts!

  13. Oh I love the pattern and colors of the first one! Would be a lovely "picknick blanket" for my little yard in the summer... Feel free to send it my way when you make one! LOL

    Our trees have pretty much dropped their leaves by now. :P

  14. Beautiful tree Terry! Don't you just love the fall colours!! After making my wedding ring quilt, I have been oogling drunkard's path too. Might have to be on the look out for the book you highlighted.
