    I've always loved the drunkard path and may be one day I'll get the nerve to do one. I'm totally in love with yours.

    Your quilt is one of the nicest drunkard's path designs I've seen. It's one of my favorites and you really did it justice with your color choices. Good job!

    I love your Drunkard's path! I really think it looks more like a 'Dancing path'! It looks so cheerful and happy!

    Awesome! Great Job, I love the color selection. It's also on my to do list. How complicated is it to do? Do you have any tips you learned along the way that made it easier?

    I do not think this is a difficult pattern to do. Most directions say to put the convex on the bottom and the concave on the top, but I do the opposite and that works for me. One of my quilting friends clips each piece about 1/8 inch around each curve before she even begins to sew them together, I knew someone that used silk pins and pinned all the way across the curve and sewed over the pins - very carefully - and that worked for her.

    I really enjoy the many ways to put the blocks together to make many, many different designs. I hope you make one and enjoy doing it. Thank you for your kind words about my quilt - I still have to quilt it and will do that this weekend.
