Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

If you've always wanted to try the deliciously meandering Drunkard's Path pattern, but were put off by the pattern's reputation for difficulty, help is at hand. With the step-by-step instructions and detailed drawings in this expert guide, anyone can easily learn to piece this attractive, time-honored pattern.
Tracing the history of the Drunkard's Path from England, internationally known quilting authority Pepper Cory illustrates the pattern's many engaging variations (including Old Maid's Puzzle, Rob Pete to Pay Paul, Tumbleweed, and more) while offering advice on every stage of the quilting process, from selecting fabrics and making templates to designing layouts and mastering the tricky curves. For those who still doubt their ability to achieve perfect curves but crave this irresistible pattern, Pepper Cory offers four alternative methods consisting entirely of straight lines but conveying the optical illusion of curves.
In addition to four pages of full-size templates, you'll also find 38 inspiring full-color photos and an illustrated index of 80 Drunkard's Path variations. The result is an indispensable resource for any quilter interested in this classic pattern.

I found this book to be extremely helpful in moving from "beginner" level to more advanced work in quilting. Pepper's well-written directions and tips make it easy to piece challenging curved blocks, and her illustrations are an inspiration!

The book did a fine job going through the history of the pattern and had excellent color photos of different styles. I obtained the book for those two reasons -- and the color photos and variations give me ideas for projects.

This author provides all the informatiion to sew this block even for a beginer quilter. I can't wait to get started. I usually buy used books but this one was worth the price of a new one.

This book offers many great patterns using the drunkards path as the tool. I love sewing these types of patterns. The book was in excellent shape and was everything I hoped for it to be.
