Cross the Drunkard's Path Quilt Along

I have been eyeing 
my 4 inch Accuquilt die
for Drunkard's Path
and just needed a good reason to use it.
And here comes Vicki and starts
Perfect!
So I can finally conquer 
sewing curves
the 'modern' die-cut way!

While google-ing & bing-ing
for Drunkard's Path images,
I came across Dani's fabulous

Isn't this just the cutest DP quilt ever?
Yes, you can use a cutting die:
you'll have to trim the blocks
as perfectly shown in Dani's tutorial.
Just wondering if my 4 inch die
is too small - her tutorial
works with trimmed 6 inch blocks.
Mine would be trimmed to around 3 inches...

But I do have a won Kona bundle
that would nicely provide the needed colors...
The 2nd DP quilt pic that
 caught my eye
comes from the book
and is called 
Nine Patch Curves:
where I could put my low volume 
and monochromatic fabrics
to good use:

Yes, I am joining the QAL
but am still making up my mind
which pattern to use.
Linking up 

Off to sew some practice curves,
Barb

  1. How fun!! You could just make one animal to see how it looks OR go buy the larger die! At any rate, either quilt would be wonderful - love them both. Pretty chilly up here - 42 degrees.

  2. Now that is a totally different setting for DP. The hard part of the Quilt Along for me is deciding on the setting.

  3. That cute little animal DP has caught my eye too! Perfect baby quilt.I think your 3" would work as it will give you 6" sq animals. Both of your selections are fab! Congrats on your wins, too!
