    Beautiful!! I would have never thought the Drunkard's Path could be used for such a design. The idea of using the Accuquilt Go die makes it even better!!

    Thanks everyone for the kind comments. It's always exciting to mail quilts off and wait for the new owner's comments! I think she'll be happy.

    I agree with Jitterbug (post #8). Perfect fabric and pattern and really got the feel of the ocean.

    Did I mention that I am another lost cousin? LOL

    Was not able to find the pattern on the Carolina Cotton website. Any help in finding it is appreciated.

    This is a gorgeous rendition of the Drunkards Path.

    Each block is trimmed with a square to 1/4" to the outside of the curved piece. That is done to get the curvy flow from one block to the next. Here's a blog that has a better picture that maybe explains it - even though it's for a different size, the technique is the same.

    Please let me know if you have questions!

    Let me see if i can find a pic for illustration purposes...

    I misstated on my original post - i bought the pattern from Carolina Cotton but the designer info is 'The Wave' by The Sweet Tea Girls Patterns
    I did a quick google search with that info and it's available on Quilter's Warehouse website, among others.

    My apologies for not giving the correct info up front!

    This is for Geri

    So here's a mock up picture - in the real world the 2 pieces would be sewn together, then place your square up ruler 1/4" from the curved edges:
    Attachment 513177

    Then trim both sides - the pink sides. When you sew your blocks together, you are in theory sewing on the curved edge at the outer most edge of the block. The other layout I did first when I found about this 'method' was this wall hanging: http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...g-t261036.html (again NOT an original layout )
    there are many options for using these curvy blocks - make a few and have fun!
