Only a week behind but here I am with the follow up to the Vintage Quilt Thursday, Drunkard's Path. You can check out the vintage quilt I used as inspiration here .
The vintage quilt's individual blocks finished at 2". That's no typo. Mine finish at 6".
I used a fantastic ruler by Marti Michell. You can find it here.
I pieced the individual squares in the traditional block but, as you can see, there are many different layouts. The unfinished block I made is 20"
I wanted to sew a 2 color block like the inspirational quilt but I am very excited to make a scrappy quilt. I haven't decided on a totally scrappy block or make each block with the same fabric but each block different.
The above block I hand quilted with chunky stitches using Perle cotton. It didn't take long at all. I do spy a small section I missed. I must have run out of thread
On the top is a zipper half installed. I am easily distracted. Eventually it will become a pillow for one of my daughter's beds.
Next weeks Vintage Quilt Thursday are blocks I inherited and the following Thursday I will have a PDF template for you to download. My first PDF, very exciting.
