I finished my last two small blocks last night for my Drunkard’s Path quilt and now I face design decisions which is why I haven’t joined the blocks together yet. It may all change.
As you may recall I started this quilt to practise sewing curves and to use some of the lovely Alison Glass fabric. I had no specific design in mind when I started and just let the fabrics and colour guide me.
Now I have to stop fluffing about and make some decisions! I have even resorted to drawing a rough sketch which is unusual for me. I’m thinking of doing a border around these small blocks and will do a test of that tonight. The word “small” is relative in this case as these four blocks end up making a 12″ square and the large blocks make a 24″ square so it will definitely be big and bold.
I have enjoyed making these blocks, but I’m now ready to finish it and to move on to the other five or six projects I want to try!
Winter has finally arrived in Sydney on the last day of Autumn for us – it’s raining and we have had a temperature drop of between 10″ and 15″ after an unseasonably hot April and May. All the more reason to stay indoors and stitch.
Hope all is well in your world…
