A drunk finish….

Despite the Portland snow…we have had 10 inches in my neighborhood… I managed to get a few snaps of my latest finish…

The snow has prevented me from getting to my backyard and hanging the quilt on my the back fence, so the photos are a little different.  This quilt began last year with me playing with a Go Baby cutter a friend had lent me…and you can see my process for making the block on my original post

I must admit I would never make curves this small without the help of a cutting machine and a glue pen…. It was incredibly addictive and I must admit I have already used the cutter again…another drunkard path quilt is underway…

I loved using my Cotton & Steel stash on this project… these fabrics are so fun, colourful and full of fussy cutting goodness.   I may have got a few more fat quarter bundles from Santa that have inspired me to start a new C&S quilt… but more about that next week!

The quilting on this quilt was done by my friend Michelle Freedman using Modern Domestic’s Bernina long arm.  Michelle is the queen of the Q24 and the stores machine has just been automated… I can not wait to play using the computer assist.

This quilt is now headed to the washing machine and then on to a local Pediatric Intensive Care unit.  It is going to make for a fun game or two of “I spy”.

  1. This is so inspirational & sure to bring some joy to a hospitalized child (or adult!). What a great way to use up one’s stash. I might have to try it myself. I live in Bandon, OR, (& all we got is rain from this last storm – boo hoo, I miss snow…) & I love getting your posts. We’re a bit isolated down here from the modern quilting world. Thankful for the internet!

  3. It’s brilliant, like a sort of stained glass window lying on the snow! Whatever else your bash on the head did, it hasn’t interrupted your creativity or colour sense… I’m so happy to see you back and posting again 🙂

  4. I’m so glad I checked out your original post. I got the Accuquilt Go and have made two quilts using the larger Drunkards Path. Those blocks went together so easily, I asked for the smaller one for Christmas. After one block, I thought NEVER! But glue basting will probably be just what I need. I have smaller scraps I want to use up and wanted to try a couple different settings. I hope I can find one of the glue pens at Joanns! Thanks for the tip!

  5. What an amazing quilt to donate! Love a good game of eye spy! I’m going to check out your post in sewing those curves … glue you say?!

  6. I would love to try out a cutter one day… Enought projects in my world at the moment so no hurry there 🙂 Your quilt turned out really great and I think the snow made for beautiful pictures.

  7. What a fun quilt. I live in Salem and visited Modern Domestic for the first time two weeks ago. My neighbor and I are doing the 365 Challenge with Kathryn Kerr so we loaded up on some great fabrics at Modern Domestic.
