Drunkard’s Path QAL – Second Project

IMG_0090wtmk

There are a huge number of little blocks that have been waiting to be turned into a quilt for a very long time. 832 of the 2″ Drunkard’s Path blocks, in fact. This is the setting I’m going to use, but there is a lot of work to be done!

I saw this quilt in Ontario’s Heritage Quilts years and years ago and immediately fell in love with it. At that point I started tracing the templates to make the little blocks. I got as far as tracing the templates for and making 307 of the 832 blocks I  needed and then the project went into hibernation.

Then a year or so later the Inklingo 2″ Drunkard’s Path collection came out and I was right back at it. No more tracing templates made this so much more fun. And in no time I had all the shapes I needed printed on my fabrics and quickly got the rest of the 832 little 2″ blocks made. And then the project went back into hibernation.

It was unearthed again and all the 2″ blocks were sewn into 2″ x 4″ rectangles as seen in these two boxes. I had sewn all the little blocks into the rectangles by machine and slowly started putting them into 4 blocks by machine, but wasn’t enjoying it. And then the project went back into hibernation.

And now? Now I’m putting them into the 4″ blocks like these by hand and enjoying it so much more. This project is not going back into hibernation. And I have Vicki’s Drunkard’s Path QAL to thank for finally getting these out and at the top of my list of projects. Maybe, just maybe, I can get the top done before the end of the year. That’s my goal.

I’m linking up to the Vicki Welsh’s Cross the Drunkard’s Path QAL where you can see what others are doing on this wonderfully winding path of fun with Drunkard’s Path blocks!

  1. I am trying to wrap my head around 832 two-inch drunkard’s path blocks! How is that even possible? Never mind my processing. though. Your itty-bitty blocks are looking great! Can wait to see what you do with them all!

  2. Did you say 832? Did you say 2 inch? I can see why this went into hibernation a few times. But I can see why you fell in love with it. I’m in love too. I love 30s fabrics in anything. And you will have one unique and gorgeous quilt when all is said and done. You go girl! You can do it!
