In case you don’t have the AccuQuilt GO and don’t want to use the printed template linked to the instructions, you can buy a 7 inch finished Drunkard’s Path template from Marti Mitchell.

My first version of this quilt uses Homespuns and has a border. My next version will be a smaller donation quilt in pink and purple according to the instructions. Several size options are included.

    I NEVER would’ve thought to use homespuns with this patterns (too stretchy, I’d think) but I just love the way it looks! So cozy! OK… another one on my “to do list”. Thanks for all the inspiration! I love this site!

  • I love your Drunkard’s Path quilt. I’ve always liked this pattern and homespun fabrics, so to me they look fabulous together. I’ve been collecting thifted man’s plaid shirts, which may end up in a quilt like this. Thanks for sharing.

    sorry left wrong email on prev message.
    How did the i get there

  • Dianne Peaslee:

    I just bought a go, and the first die I purchased was the DP. So much easier than my sons “turtle” quilt I made with a DP plastic template to cut around.
    Do you know of any other shapes I can make with this die? So far I’ve made a flying bird, 2 chick types of birds, a basket, 2 types of butterflies and of course the turtle

    Thanks for any help,
    Best Wisher,

    Mary This a beautiful quilt. I have no idea how I stumbled upon your blog but I’m so thrilled I did.Blessings, Cleta

  • Gari:

    I like your plaid DP. I have done 3 1/2″ DP blocks but I think 7″ ones would be easier. And this would make a great comfort quilt for children. Thanks

  • Hey Mary…the quilt looks beeyootiful! I have a Go but not the DP dies. How do you sew the curves together…is it hard or do you need a special foot like the Curvemaster?
