Guest #9 at our Wantobe Quilters -it's Mary with Baby Drunkard's Path Table Runner/ Wall Hanging Tutorial

Welcome to the Thursday edition of Wantobe Quilter.  I am Mary on Lake Pulaski here as a guest of the fabulous Madame Samm! 

I would like to provide all Wantobe Quilter and experienced quilters with:
a tutorial for a Drunkard's Path Table Runner or Wall Hanging.
 It's 15 inches by 29 inches and each finished block is seven inches square.

TUTORIAL
  1.  Materials list
  • AccuQuilt GO! Baby fabric cutter
  • AccuQuilt GO! Drunkard's Path 3 1/2" finished die
  • five varied fat eights of fabric for blocks - I used Pure Elements from Art Gallery in Burnt Orange, Cozumel Blue, Empire Yellow, Light Citron and Linen White
  • one coordinating fat quarter for binding
  • 16 X 30 each backing fabric and batting
  • thread
   2. Cutting Instructions
  • Cut each fat eighth into three - 5 3/4" by 11" rectangles
  • Cut fat quarter for binding into 6 strips 1 1/2" wide by 22" (single fold binding)
   3. Using the AccuQuilt GO! Baby fabric cutter and the Drunkard's Path die, cut all of the rectangles into pieces as shown. 


You will have six sets of each color.  You can cut up to six layers at one time depending on fabric.  Since this was my first time, I cut three layers at a time.


4.  Place all the pieces on your design board to arrange the colors to your liking as shown below.


5.  Assemble all of your curved pieces.  Here is where we go to an expert.  The magnificent Crazy Mom Quilts recently posted a tutorial on this very type of piecing so why reinvent the wheel??  She kindly agreed to let me link to her post called running in circles tutorial. Keep in mind she started out using templates to cut out her pieces which were a different size, but THE PIECING IS THE SAME.  Thank you Amanda Jean!

Remember: 
  • smile side of piece on top when sewing
  • three pins each put through the fabric at least three times (this really helps)
  • keep bulk of fabric spread out
  • sew slowly
 Match up so the two pieces are centered from the back:


and then turn over and pin in the center first and then the two edges.
See where I went through the fabric three times with the pins.

6. Follow assembly instructions and pressing instructions from Crazy Mom Quilts here with two blocks across and four blocks down.

   7. Sandwich, quilt and bind as normal.  I did my quilting with hand quilting thread on my machine with regular thread in the bobbin and using a long stitch 1/4" outside each circle.
Here are some photos of my finished Table Runner / Wall Hanging:



Thanks so much for taking time to read this tutorial.  If you try it or have any questions, just contact me!

By the way, I didn't even know, but I'm currently making a Drunkard's Path quilt just like this - the tutorial never mentioned the name! Except I used applique on the front so that the sides of the circles would fray :)

  122. Wonderful tutorial Mary and a big "thank you" it is a wonderful pattern and one I might try in christmas colors. I have looked at your blog and became a follower and will go back I love the laminate bag that you have done. Also a big thank you to Madame Samm( whom I have been following for sometime now) and the sponsors for showing us new products that are out there to use. I do not have a go but might have to seriously consider it at one point since I am getting neuropathy in my right hand but will do it the old fashion way for now. I am hoping to go on my first quilting retreat in September and would love to win that bag....Madamme Samm thanks for keeping us quilters up to date....have a wonderful day

  180. Now following Mary. And thank you for that wonderful tutorial. I am so jealous of Go owners...maybe someday I will have the funds to get one of my own.
    And of course I'm a follower here, silly!

    And I could really, really use a sewing machine bag on wheels. I have an older Bernina that must weight at least 50lbs...holy cow! And it is an all-out effort for me to lug it with me to classes or sewing friends' houses!

  194. Mary this brought back good memories for me. I remember when my mother made a Drunkard's Path quilt, cutting each piece by hand with a template she made out of newspaper. She would love the ease of quilting today. :) blessings, marlene
