  • use a sewing machine
  • basic piecing

Pattern Description:

Conquer your fear of sewing curves with this fresh interpretation of the classic drunkard's path block. Much simpler than you imagine it to be, sewing curves can be fun, easy, and open up a world of design possibilities.
Inspired by a piece of graphic design, this pattern will take you through the process and yield a quilt that is approximately 48 x 72 inches. (Once you make the 4-unit blocks, though, you could easily go smaller with a 48 x 48 inch quilt or larger with a 72 x 72 inch quilt or even larger still.)

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 48 x 72 inches
  • or larger if you so choose


  • 16 - 24 fat quarters of fabric
  • 2 1/2 yards background fabric
  • 2 1/2 yards (or more depending on your finished size) of fabric for the back
  • 1/2 yard of fabric for the binding
  • 2 1/2 yards of batting

You Will Also Need:

  • thread
  • pins
  • cardboard or template plastic
