Down the Beaten Path
84 x 96
I started this in 2014 as a Quilt Along where everyone chose their own version of Drunkard's Path, fabrics, size, etc. I used a paper template and cut by hand the pieces for my six inch blocks because curves and a rotary cutter in my hands don't get along. I chose polka dots and stripes for my fabrics because I had made a much loved Shoofly quilt using the same which started with swapped blocks.
Back in 2014 I made about 30 blocks and quit. Fast forward to 2017 and I decided to move forward and make 224 blocks for a big quilt (14 x 16 layout). I made it my goal to make 12 blocks a week for however many weeks it took. In March 2018 it became a flimsy.
I took advantage of some cooler weather to work on finishing this big quilt on my DSM in the house with no a/c. I used the Wayward quilting design found at Christina Cameli's blog, A Few Scraps.
It was a lot of fun and pretty easy to do on my DSM with the dinky throat - far less boring than straight line quilting on a big quilt.
I used a polka dot and a stripe fabric from stash on the back. I meant to make it into a four patch but never got that far when I got everything out to pin baste. And so it goes...
