Vintage Quilt Thursday: Drunkard's Path

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.


  1. Pretty! The vintage inspiration is ultra lovely - I can totally see why you chose it!!
