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.
