WIP Wednesday #13

Yikes! It's been weeks since my last wip wed post!

Drunkard's Path Quilt Along - I've been making slow and steady progress on piecing my blocks. When the QA was first announced I sewed up sixteen blocks and arranged them into SEVERAL different larger blocks, took pictures and spent a bit of time and effort figuring out different layouts. Here's what I came up with!








The following pic is my all-time favorite DP layout. It's traditionally done in a two solid color pallete, and eventually I'd like to make one like that. Much bigger though, for my bed.



Since this will be for my niece due in December, (hey MQ, pretend you didn't read that!) I went with all the pink and white prints I had on hand and got a bunch of this slate gray for the background. I like the look of this last layout for a little baby, it reminds me of those shape games where you fit the circle peg in the circle hole, etc. So, while I love some of the other options I'm going with this one for this quilt. Yay!


Other than some coasters, mug rugs, and a vest I've been working on for my lovely roomie, all my other projects have been sitting for weeks. I should really get cracking as Christmas is just around the corner...

  4. I love so many of these! Especially the 2nd one down in the 2nd column. I have already decided on the one below it but I think I will have to make more things with this block. It's versatile!
