This Dots and Dashes Drunkard's Path is one of my oldest UFOs. I worked on it from October - November 2014 - a Drunkard Path sew along with each person making their own version of a Drunkard's Path. Sew along ended and I packed it all away.
I recently took a look at where I am with it. A paper in the box said I have 72 (six inch) blocks and I'd like to have 224. Okay. No wonder it has stalled.
I asked myself if I still wanted a big Drunkard's Path quilt. And I answered myself, "yes".
I asked myself if I thought I had enough polka dot and striped fabrics in my stash to make 152 more blocks. And I answered myself, "yes".
Ok. Game on.
When my sewing machine was in the shop a month or so ago I cut fabrics for more blocks. I cut these by hand because I don't do curves with a rotary cutter. In fact I barely cut straight lines with a rotary cutter. You should see all the nicks and scratches on my rulers. Anyway...I have some pieces cut and that's a good thing because I don't enjoy cutting all that much. I don't know how many blocks are cut...just a lot but probably not enough for 152 blocks.
Yesterday I sewed up a few blocks.
I made it through 12 blocks and I was tired of them.
So I'll make 12 blocks a week and in about 13 weeks or so I'll have enough for a big quilt.
Sounds like a plan.
