    I thought this fabric would be cool made up into a drunkard's path quilt. It makes me drunk just looking at it. I have two different color. What do you think?

    I had to come back and clarify that I plan to pair these fabrics up with a solid. Probably a blue on one and a brown on the other. Now, what do you think?

    Love the fabrics - don't think I'd like it for a Drunkard's Path, though.

    I think it would be cool, but I would choose one and pair it with a solid maybe burnt orange? Or an orangy batik?

    I think it would look neat if you paired the white with brown stripes to a dark brown and paired the other one to a tan brown. Lay it next to them and see how it look. I think if you just use these to fabrics its going to make people dizzy to look at it. But I do think the fabric would make a great effect.

    Putting them together will probably not give you the contrast the DP suggests. I'd go with either and a solid.

    Oh! I guess I wasn't clear. I meant to pair them up with a solid color and make two separate quilts!

    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.

    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)
