This quilt! I am so thrilled with how this quilt has turned out, and I have gained so much confidence when it comes to sewing those curves. I am glad that I have persevered with sewing curves and worked towards a method that works well for me. Even if that means using no pins and trimming the blocks if so needed.

I have used many of my favorite (favorite!!) fabrics to make this quilt. I have many fabrics in my stash that I love, most of which are only small pieces, a fat quarter or less, which I have collected over the last 8 years or so. I don't have any hesitation in using these special fabric in my projects. It feels right that they're used in a handmade item that will be used and so loved. It also brings me great happiness to work with these fabrics.

Backing fabric: Pam Kitty Picnic Tiny Toile in Lime Green 
The quilt is quilted with simple straight lines running edges to edge horizontally and vertically as well as a set of diagonal lines that run through the center of the circles. This quilt is all about the fabrics and the quilting is minimal and functional. That's not to say that it isn't quite heavily/densely quilted.

The Drunkard's Path block is such a versatile block, and the layout possibilities with different fabric combinations are endless. I see more of these quilts in my future and can't wait to play with design, patterns and different size blocks.

  1. This is one of my all time favorite quilts. I love scrappy, and lots of white, and I also like quilting that follows lines. It lets the fabric stand out~ hugs~

  2. This quilt is beautiful, and quilted just the way I like it. With the emphasis on the fabric, not the quilting. I find recently that quilts are being so heavily quilted that the fabric seems to recede into the background. I don't know about anyone else, but I want to see the fabric.

  6. It is gorgeous, Ms RPQ!!! And it seems so timely to me, that you are making a quilt with curves, while I am "curving" along with Molly Flanders Makerie! Curves are in the air :)
