Most people that don't sew or quilt do not understand how expensive and time consuming it is to make a quilt so I didn't want to make a quilt and not have them like it. That would suck! So once she gave me the go ahead with the fabrics I drew on a piece of paper the half circle for the drunkard path block. I drew out my own since all the downloads avalible were not the size I wanted. I wanted a large block so I would not have to make as many squares. Since I free handed it the block it came out alittle more square than circle but I love it now. I will be making a pdf download available soon so you can make this block to.
With my parents here for a couple of months I was able with the help of my Mom with the girls to get the top done in a day! It is 54" x 70".
Then the next day was the weekend and I rested since I came down with a bad cold. On Monday I was able to baste and quilt it.
I decided to spiral quilt in each square/circle and then to do straight lines on each side of the seams on each sides of the rows.
It is love.
Here is the back of the quilt you can see the quilting better.
This quilt is so fun and I think it is on my list next for me to make us one. I already have the fabric picked out for it.
For the back of the quilt I found an Alexander Henry print that is red and aqua which are the main colors of my brothers house and used what I had in my stash. Added in some Kona Azure and Kona Red for the binding to finish it off.
Now I just need to get this folded small and tight to fit in a box to mail it off to my brother so they can get it for Christmas!
