    This is the first blue and brown that I like together. It will be good.

    I am doing a dark, dark blue and bright orange for my GS and wife in the Drunkards path pattern. Sort of Asian fabrics and they are Japanese and Cambodian so it is their choice. I only have a couple of blocks done but I like it.

    If I can take a photo of a block I will post it.

    Likewise. I like the fabric, but cut up small enough for DP, I don't think I would care for it myself. JMHO The design would be too disrupted.

    Yes, this!

    Personally, I think you're going to totally loose both the impact of the fabric AND the impact of the DP block...but I do like the fabric. Make up a 16 patch and see what you think before committing to a whole quilt, let alone two of them.

    maybe use in the border but not in the block
    will distract from the block
    my opinion :-D

    Suggestion ... audition it.

    cut drunkard path holes in sheets of paper or cloth in the contrast color you plan to use, lay it on the fabric. Or cut a few pieces.

    It sounds like a good idea, but IMHO, you are going to lose the impact of both the drunkard's path pieces AND your wavy fabric.

    (cool if I'm wrong, tho)
