So I'm having a bit of an obsession right now with drunkard's path blocks. The big ones are so easy, especially if you cut them with a die cutting machine, and they look so effective. It's a pretty satisfying combination.
I cut a bundle of Amy Butler's Glow collection into drunkard's path pieces a few weeks ago, and since then I've been itching to start sewing them up. A couple of weekends ago I was unable to resist the temptation and started making blocks.
I wanted to keep this quilt simple (since the fabric is super busy) and just use two fabrics for each block. I love how it's coming out so far.
I ended up making nine out of the total twenty blocks I'll need for this quilt, which was pretty good going for about three hours sewing time. My favourite at the moment is the block with the very dark outside and the pink in the middle - such great movement in the prints.
I have a fun idea about how I want to quilt this quilt - now to make the rest of the blocks and see whether I can pull off the quilting I'm considering.
I'll be linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced:
