Really Drunk Paths

I stumbled upon this gorgeous improv circles quilt over the weekend and I can't get it out of my head. The tutorial to make the blocks works like a charm. You can always count on the blogging community for inspiration and guidance. I used some scraps to try the technique. It's fun! I think I may make some blocks for our guild's Madrona Road challenge.

I turned the practice block into a potholder. Now on to make some more. I've always loved the Drunkard's Path quilt block and although sewing curves is scary at first, the blocks have a striking appearance when put together.

Don't forget the Peace Quilt pattern giveaway. It's been so much fun seeing Rene's pattern interpreted by so many talented quilters.

This little drawstring pouch was my relaxation yesterday morning. I made it to hold a menagerie of finger puppets I scored for $2. They're super cute and should provide some entertainment to a little one. I love the yellow duck the best.

We practiced Super Bowl Sunday last night for dinner. I've been seeing all kinds of delicious recipes for appetizers. My family doesn't follow football, but I usually put the Super Bowl on if just to catch the funny commercials and the halftime show. Plus, it's an excuse to eat appetizers for dinner. Yeah, like I need an excuse... Last night's dinner included a vegetable platter with goat cheese stuffed peppers, Buffalo chicken dip, and salad caprese with sourdough French bread. Tonight I'm grilling chicken wings. You gotta love Florida in January. The high is 83 today.


  1. Love that block AND your potholder! I want to try one right now! Yummy looking dinner too!

  2. Today was a gorgeous weather day, wasn't it? Too bad I had stuff to do inside. Cut drunkard's block and patchwork bag. You've been a productive girl in 2013!


I would love to hear from you. Comments make my day!
