    this is a time honored traditional quilt pattern and there are so many arrangements of the pattern that can be used to create some beautiful quilts. Have you made one??? If so, show it here!!

    I have the templates but am nervous about sewing the curves so I have not tried it yet.

    I posted mine about a month ago. Here is a link... http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-121953-1.htm

    I used an Easy Circle Cut Ruler to cut squares (green, blue, gold, brown) into two pieces, one being the pie the other being the crust. Then I cut red squares. I then machine appliqued the crust and pie pieces onto the red squares. I trimmed the red that was not needed then went about putting it together like a regular quilt! 16 squares = a block, 5 blocks wide x 5 blocks long, quilt is 100x100

    I made a crazy drunkards path in 2003. It had a scrappy center on the blocks with a double arc on two opposite corners. I turned the blocks randomly as I assembled it, I looked like little roads all over the quilt. The large center portion was paper pieced from random scraps. I finished it as a Christmas gift and it was wrapped and under the tree when the house burned to the ground. It is on my list to do again.

    I don't make large quilts but here are a few of the hotpads I have made in the past with the Drunkard's Path blocks.

    I decided to try sewing a few and found it kind of hard, so tucked away what I started. Here's a peek at what I did do!

    I think you need to pull it back out and try again. they are so easy to handstitch. So far, it looks good to me!1

    I used my drunkards path templates to put mine into circles. This quilt reminds me of Twister ...the game.
    And I have many drunkards paths planned for my future. I love sewing these up.

    I took a class on Sunday so am just starting my very first one! Here's the beginning of my layout play - it will probably take me months to decide on a layout!

    I''m not sure how old this quilt is. My Great Aunt Mae made it many years ago. She died in 1977, and my Grandma (her sister) gave it to me 5 years ago. Grandma doesn't know how old it is. It is all hand sewn and hand quilted. I am thankful that I have it. I appreciate it so much more since I have started quilting.

    I haven't tried this yet but I do like the hot pads. I will have to give it a try. Hot pads look like a great way to try out a new block.
