Design Wall Monday - January 4, 2021

Well, here we are in 2021, and my start of the new year has been unsettling.  We are up at the cabin and had not planned to be up here, so I don’t have much to report about my quilting, as there is not much I’ve had time to work on.

But I am working on an old project that I started in 2012.  I took a class about curved seams and started this drunkard’s path quilt.   I blogged about it (Here)

Currently, the project is now: 


I can see that my 1/4 inch seam accuracy has improved since I made this beginning part eight years ago, and now I am enjoying getting convex and concave pieces of fabric sewn together.  A little miracle with each seam.   

Since I don’t have a lot to report about quilting today, it is the perfect opportunity to tell you all how much I appreciate your participation in Design Wall Mondays.  You always inspire me, teach me, make me laugh, and encourage me.  I thank you for the bottom of my heart.

So I am looking forward to pictures and posts today.  Please participate and cheer up this old lady.  I ask that you mention Design Wall Monday somewhere in your post, and also provide a link to this particular post so people can come here and see the other posts.  Thank you.

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

  2. I've never made a Drunkard's path quilt, I avoid curves! Are you hand stitching or machine? Happy stitching!

  3. It's always a nice feeling to realize that your skills have gotten better. I'm not a fan of curved piecing so I pretty much avoid it. Your blocks look great. Sorry your 2021 got off a bit rough, hopefully things will improve quickly.

  5. I keep seeing Drunkard's Path blocks -- in traditional designs, in modern designs. It's a shape that I really need to try out. Thanks for the inspiration, Judy!

  8. Nothing like a bunch of new blogs to look at to spice up our life. I find I go up and down in contentment or happiness. Luckily I'm up these days and getting a lot done. Not a lot to actually show but good progress nevertheless. I really want to do a Drunkards Path or variation. I even bought a die to do so. I've used it on one block for someone else. Maybe someday I'll use it more. Take care.

  9. Curves are tough and Drunkard's Path looks even more difficult. It's always gratifying to see your own improvement. I hope you enjoy the rest of it.

  10. Thank you for hosting the DWM because I look forward to checking it out each week. So sorry your new year has had a rough start. Hopefully things will improve for you. Drunkard's Path blocks are so striking but the curved seam tends to scare folks. It really is a fairly easy block to make and yours look very good.

  11. Glad you are able to work on this UFO. It's coming along nicely and will be fantastic when it's finished. I've always enjoyed seeing Drunkard's Path. It is definitely a "someday" project for me, even more so now that I know I can sew curves. Thanks for the link up! Happy New Year & Good Providence!

  13. Those DP blocks look fabulous to me! Are you hand piecing them or doing it by machine? Happy New Year, Judy!
