quilt block library : drunkard’s path

drunkards_path_block

This is my first attempt at a Drunkard’s Path block / curved piecing. Could definitely use some more practice, and it definitely takes a steady patient hand at the machine, but it wasn’t quite as difficult as it’s often made to be. I used this really clear tutorial from Mack and Mabel, and there was only thing I did differently. Knowing that precision is not really my strong suit, in the section that describes making the concave pieces smaller, I drew the trim lines on with a pencil, then trimmed them only after the two parts were sewn together. (Then squared up the whole thing – all four quadrants – at the very end.)
