The drunkard's path that is.....
I've wanted to make a quilt with circles for a long time but never mustered up my courage to do it. But last week I thought about the three different baby quilts I want to make and decided it was a perfect opportunity to play with circles.
I bought a little fat quarter bundle with owls, mushrooms, and polkadots and paired it with fabric from my stash. I created my own circle template after looking at a few tutorials and ended up with four 6-5-inch drunkard path blocks that sewed up into a 12-in block. I didn't overthink fabrics and probably should have used more white for negative space, but I'm always happy with a riot of colour.
The quilting was simple and just followed the lines and circles, so there was a lot of stopping and starting.
Since it was for a baby I got to use up a lot of my little animal prints.
But I never got to the binding as my brother-in-law from Vancouver Island was with us visiting, so the family got involved in one of its favourite activities, brush clearing and bonfires. The weather was cool and rainy while he was here, so a great time to get out and work!
Neil and Bob cut down lots of saplings on one day, and then we burned everything the next day.
The smoke keeps the mosquitos away too!
