Drunkard’s Path Variation in Rouenneries

Finishing this top was an almost bittersweet moment, as I have loved every second of working with the gorgeous Rouenneries fabrics. It was hand pieced, other than adding the two borders. While I generally don’t make square quilts, this one finishes at 54″ square. It’s large enough to use as a throw. I can also imagine it as a large wall hanging.

I made it from 5 charm packs of Rouenneries plus two larger pieces of fabrics from that line for the borders and used the 3″ Inklingo Drunkard’s Path collection. I know Rouenneries Deux is coming out sometime in the future, and can’t wait. Working with these colours/designs was an absolute joy. I’m thinking that a star quilt in Rouenneries Deux may just be in my future.

This quilt was being worked on when I finished Chintz Circles.  I knew I wanted to use the same binding fabric, so made enough binding then and it’s ready. The backing fabric I used for Chintz Circles will be used for this one too. All that’s left to get is the batting and then this one will be hand quilted. And I need to find a name for it.

The past few nights I’ve been working on hand quilting the whole cloth quilt, but everything is going to come to a standstill for a few days while I make a quilt from the flannel fabrics I showed last week. I’ve decided on a double 4-patch. It needs to be made quickly as it’s for a friend’s brother-in-law who has just been given a rather grim diagnosis/prognosis.

  1. Beautiful quilt! How you do it all is beyond me. I still think you have elves that come out at night! I missed this fabric line, am anxiously awaiting the new. I’ve looked online and not a scrap to be had in the first line of Rouenneries. I won’t miss the next! Thanks for letting us know about it, as I had not heard. Baxter is not camera shy, is he? Great photo.


  2. As usual, your work is awesome! Everything you do is beautiful. Thanks, yours is the first blog I go to every day. Beautiful way to start the day. I’m about to finish up my tumbler quilt made with Inklingo. I love it and nobody believes that it’s made by hand either.


  3. Wow! Baxter is a real ADULT kitteh now! I switched ‘puters and lost most of my favorite blog links in the transition (yours being one). Using hubby’s was a good idea: I got to visit you and Baxter again!! BTW, LOVE the quilt and the color combo! xxoo Patty


  4. This one is so feminine–looks very lovely. I am also enamored with the twinkling stars quilt–so pretty! Baxter is looking very distinguished these days–not so kitteny any more. But so photogenic!
