A New Spin on Drunkard's Path Blog Tour Kickoff!

Posted by

Do you think you have seen it all when it comes to the Drunkard’s Path block? Well, think again and have a look at this book:  A New Spin on Drunkard’s Path!

What is so different about this approach? Well, what would happen if you made a half-square triangle and then cut out your Drunkard's Path block components?

Or a rail fence block?

Or a sixteen-patch block?

Complex-looking designs that are really very simple to create!

What will you find on this blog tour? Well—I know there are a few bloggers who have re-made some of the projects in the book with different fabric—I have seen a few sneak peaks, and the results are wonderful. Also, I do believe that there are going to be some quilting ideas presented on how to quilt some of the blocks. And what else? Well, you are just going to have to have a look for yourself.

Visit the following blogs and enter to win! Winners from the U.S. will receive a hard copy of the book; international winners will receive an electronic copy of the book. In addition each winner will receive a set of Marti Michell Drunkard’s Path templates. And rumors are floating around that you might even be able to snag some goodies from some of the bloggers (Some—not all—are adding a little something of their own to the mix!)

Winners will be picked the weekend of October 8 and 9, 2016.

What’s in a Block?

I want easy, so I’m often thrown by the fallacy of my initial reaction: Hmmm, that one looks too hard. What I need to do is to take a [...]
