DRUNKARD'S PATH QUILT~A~LONG {FINISHED TOP}

Whew!  What a busy week!  It was so nice to be able to spend our Thanksgiving with all of our family but after 3 celebrations I was exhausted ;)  A little relaxation and some quality time with my sewing machine was just what I needed yesterday.  I was able to get my DP quilt top done (and on time!)...whoo hoo!!!



I want to give Kristie from OCD and Kate from Needle and Spatula a BIG thanks for hosting the DP Quilt~a~long.  They challenged me to step out of my sewing comfort zone with all of those curved seams and I am so happy I did.  This is the first quilt I have made for myself and I absolutely love how it turned out!  So much that I am going to send it out to be quilted.  It deserves better than my not~so~straight quilting ;)  I also have thoughts of another DP quilt with this layout in black and white.

Oh my word, this is so fantastic! And you've made my day by saying that you're sending it out to be quilted. I think that's who I am inside. :-) I have a couple of quilting roadblocks, and that's definitely one of them. Wonderful job! Beautiful quilt!

Beautiful work! I just recently dared to try Drunkard's Path blocks for the first time, and I was surprised to find them not-as-hard-as-I'd-thought! Yours are awesome!
