Many Paths All Around - Drunkard's Path Block 1

One challenge isn't enough!  I came across this drunkard's path sampler.  I plan to make these 12 blocks, one per week.  If you want to play along, purchase the Many Paths All Around from Elisa's Backporch Designs (scroll down...I think it's 4th from the bottom.)

If you decide to make the blocks with me, let me know and I'll link to your blog.

I selected my fabrics, deciding to make this quilt in orange and blue fabrics.  I made my first block, Block No. 1.  The pattern's DP block units are 4" finished.  Since I have the Accuquilt GO! die in 3" finished size, I'm using that.  It's going to take a little practice and time to get used to sewing the smaller units, but I'm enjoying the process all the same.  Here is my first block.  I uploaded the same photo twice, rotating one of them one quarter of a turn so you can see how different the block looks depending upon the setting.

-------------------------- Type-u-later,


  1. That block looks great!! I plan on having a GO very shortly and was thinking about getting the 7" DP, but I may have to change my mind.... Hmmm....

  2. I am in. I have the Go DP die, but I also have the backporch templates. I won't start until next week as I am working on NPP. This looks like fun. Robin

  3. Tea, I just can't keep up with you....wish I could. I love Drunkard's Path and all the different things you can do.....I'll be watching and cheering for you.


Your thoughts are valuable to me so let me know what you think.
