    I love both pieces of fabric. I would use a lighter brown and a medium blue solids. I am with you, I feel like I am drunk when looking at fabric. Jeanniebelle

    This is what I was thinking as well. Good suggestion to do a sample always before cutting the whole fabric.

    I don't think you need to do anything with those fabs -I feel drunk scrolling slowly past them. They made me feel dizzy

    WOW I see how that would make you drunk just looking at it. I think that if you like it for a drunkard's path then you need to make one. In my opion I don't think that I could sew with this one. LOL LOL Love to see what it looks like when you are done with it.

    Love the fabrics! Where did you find them? I would like to use them to make a quilt for baby boy!

    Great fabric, but maybe less is more. Keep us posted.

    Paired up with solids, as you plan, these would DEFINITELY get onlookers into the spirit (pun intended)of the Drunkard's Path :-)

    With wonderful fabrics like these I don't see how you can resist not having one of your quilts having an optical illusion effect.

    Should be interesting-----if you don't get too dizzy sewing it.

    OOOH, the only way I could work on this is in small pieces. I love the blue (would look nice on a solid brown).

    I think if it's cut small enough it may work.

    If I am not sure about the outcome of a block I make copies of the fabric on DH copier and "assemble" the blocks with the paper prints. No fabric wasted.

    I would really like to know where from you have it. Someone posted a pic from a quilt with similar looking sashing and that looked great.
