The Drunkard's Path Block: Classic meets Modern QAL, MARCH!

Saturday, March 1, 2014


Alright! Happy March 1st everyone! Ready to get your drink on?

So what better way to celebrate the month of March but with a bit of a bender *wink*

(Mind the curved-piecing & St. Patrick's Day pun)

This month, we're piecing Drunkard's Path Blocks! Woot!

Click HERE to download the PDF instructions for March's Drunkard's Path Block!

If you've never pieced curves, NO WORRIES! Don't stress! They honestly are not as hard as they look. You'll see below that I've included an excerpt from another tutorial I did on Drunkard's (hence the discrepancies in fabrics).

There are two main ways to piece curves.

  1. Pinning Method (this is what I do, takes a bit longer, but I find I get better results; tutorial CLICK HERE)
  2. Pin-less Method (and here I'll link to this video from YouTube:
