This week in our Kindred Spirits Quilt-Along we are making the Sunflower block.
Our technique focus this time is curved piecing using the humble drunkard’s Path unit (Quarter Circle and Background Fan).
I love curved piecing and the endless variety this little quilt block offers.
With the templates my ladies received this week in the QAL, and the trimming technique they learned in the teaching video, they could not only make the pretty Sunflower Block but they could make all of these 13″ quilt blocks too ……
…. and all of these 19.5″ Cushion Panels!!
How cool is that! There are endless curvy possibilities with a drunkard’s path block!
I have two more quilt examples of drunkard’s path variations, the patterns for which I hope to be able to make available soon.
Wow! That was a long post! Thank you for sticking with all my ‘curves’!
