drunkity durnk drunkard's path

I’ve been ignoring my 80’s quilt for a while because I felt like I couldn’t move on. I drew out the blocks for the third column, but there was this drunkard’s path block that scared the hell out of me. all those little wedges mocked me. I could have started some other blocks but leaving an empty spot to come back to irked me. I finally made myself sit down and sew it yesterday.

after making four little “perfect” wedges, I decided to shake things up and make the rest wonky. it is a DRUNKARD’S path after all. I threw in a little linen to add texture and more grey. you can’t have enough grey. after all my whining and fear it wasn’t so bad. fiddly, but not awful.
with the other two blocks I have done, I can finally say there are two columns finished, three more to go!

I don't even remember what block number this is!

    I love the main fabric of the first block. What is that print called?

    The first block is stunning! The last one also really caught my eye… what a genius use of color!

    I really like the last one, but I think that is the fabric color speaking to me. I cannot even imagine cutting and sewing all of those pieces in the top one!

    ooh, i love them! the bottom pic is my fave though – it reminds me of my parents old dining room wall paper – which, to me at least, is a good thing!
