    Get a bottle of wine, drink 1/2 of it. look at the quilt trying to figure out how to quilt it. drink somemore wine. look at the quilt cross eyed and dizzy. have another glass of wine, pick up your needle and thread. finish the bottle of wine and pop open another and start quilting away. however the quilt comes out just tell everyone you were drunk when you quilted it because that is what you thought the rules were to quilt a drunkards path. WELLLLLLLLLLLLLLL those are my rules....LOL

    welcome to the board!!!!!!!!!!!

    I can't quit laughing, silly girl, I believe you are right wine is the answer to lots of things. It wouldn't take me long 2 sips I can't feel my nose, 3 take my keys away, seriously. I would have that quilting pattern figured out guickly.

    speranza94, I am looking at quilting designs of the past, it is showing the quilting design as a mirrored image of your pattern on the pieced block and alternating block. It looks really nice.

    what I find even funnier is that I don't drink at all....

    I did one and quilted the circular sections following the curve and about 1 1/2 inches apart, and the straight sections or outer sections of the square I quilted straight from curved section to outer edges. If you need pics let me know and I will send... Looks great, even if colors were too busy....
