Drunkard's Path QAL: Link up your quilt tops!


Whoo hoo! We finished! This block wasn't for sissies :) Good job everyone! It has been so fun for Kate and I watching all the lovely quilt tops take shape over in the Flickr group.


The process had its moments, but once I saw my final quilt top, I was in love. I am pretty sure this will be my favorite quilt ever. And it is mine-all-mine!! I am treating myself to some long arm quilting on this one by Jenny :)

I love the fabrics (Bonnie and Camille's Ruby), and am really happy with the block arrangement that I chose (thanks to everyone for their input!). It was the scrappy diamond shaped option which had the secondary shape of the flower in white once the blocks were joined together. With so many great block options, I am pretty certain that I will be back to do another of these in the future.


Now it is time to link up your finished quilt top (or quilt, for those of you who have finished!) to be eligible for one of our prizes! We have 2 amazing prizes:

- a $40 gift certificate from Randi at Fresh Squeezed Fabrics!
- a fat quarter bundle of Tula Pink's Prince Charming fabric from Fabric Shoppe!

Be sure to visit these great shops to show your appreciation :)




So go ahead and link up your quilt tops! Links will show up both here and on Kate's blog (how cool is that?). You can link up until December 5, 2011, at which time we will randomly select our 2 winners. Good luck, and congratulations on your finishes!

SO pretty, Kristie!!! I love how your top turned out, I really want to give your quilt-along a try sometime after the holidays, you and Kate have done a fabulous job making these curves seem way less scary :)

I LOVE your quilt Kristie- beautiful!! Thanks so much to you and Kate for hosting this QAL... you guys totally gave me the courage to try something I would have otherwise been too intimidated to try. :)

Patti said...

This is so gorgeous Kristie! I hadn't seen this fabric in a quilt yet, and it is perfect for a DP. Thanks to you and Kate for co-hosting this. It is something I probably would never have done without your encouragement. ps-Too bad about the Bombers!

Kim said...

That is an awesome layout!!!!! Very very nice!

Shay said...

It looks fantastic! I'm sitting here having quilt envy.

I have some of that fabric kicking around somewhere...I wonder if I can overcome my curve fear and give this one a bash?

diane said...

So pretty. Can I send my next finish to you to photograph in the snow? What a beautiful setting!

Sarah said...

Beautiful job Kristie! Love the Ruby :-)

Kate @SwimBikeQuilt said...

Such a beautiful quilt!!! I cut out a drunkard's path quilt at a LQS on their accu-cut. I'm hoping to start it after the holidays :)

Michele said...

Beautiful. Nice job. Curves are something I steadily avoid all together but I do enjoy seeing what others do with them.

Kate S. said...

Just realized that I only wrote my comment about how awesome this was in my head, not for real (oops). Anyways, I LOVE how it turned out Kristie! So gorgeous :) That is awesome that you are keeping it for yourself too!

Melissa said...

Wow! Your quilt turned out beautifully!! Love the layout you chose. Well done!

Shelby Huff said...

Looks AMAZING!!

I'm hoping I can get my quilt top finished in time for the prizes. I need to sew faster (or ditch work... or both!). :)

Megan said...

Oh, so AWESOME, Kristie!! :) I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this top, it's wonderful! Thanks for linking up to {Sew} Modern Monday and have a great week!

Jacey said...

Oh, it's awesome! Love it! I hope to take a stab at Drunkard's Path, maybe next year. You rocked it!

Your finished quilt top looks great Kristie! And I love it in the snow. Just posted mine that I finished a couple days ago. How are you going to quilt it? Decisions!
