    drunkard's path

    I made this drunkard's path design for my friend Mark. I had given his wife a lap quilt in Janaury and now his said she will not let him use it...so...I have made this one for him. Still have to quilt it, but I hope he likes it. It was fun to make. It measures 65x65.

    I keep the concave piece on the bottom and convex piece on top and it always works out. I have never had a problem with curves using this method.

    So pretty-love the fabrics!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    That's funny....now they will each have their very own special quilts. What a nice gesture. Mark's wife will be jealous and try to steal his too. It's wonderful.
