We are nearing the end of our Scrap-bee-licious bee group, two months to go. For July, I am queen. It took me a while to choose my design. I wanted a design that could be a challenge but fun. So, I decided to look at what I would like to do, have not tried, and needed a little push to get started. The decision…drunkard path blocks.
I have been collecting inspiration on Pinterest for a while, I have included links below, please refer back to original posts

My Bee Block:
I would like drunkard path blocks which have the circle part made with one of these colors (preferably the 5 right colors). These can be either solid or print (just no prints with animals or characters on it and modern fabrics please).
The outer ring should be a solid neutral such as in the Kona ranges (which you do not have to use)….Bone, Neutral, Oyster, White, Sliver or Shadow.
I do not as yet have a plan on how I am using the blocks. But we are going to use the template E and F at the back of ” A Quilter’s Mixology” for the drunkard path block. It makes a 7″ block. The sewing instructions are on pages 14-16. Everyone in Scrap-bee-licious, who has confirmed their addresses has a book on its way 🙂
Scrap-bee-licious folks, let me know if you have any other questions. Hopefully that clarifies it somewhat.
Is that book as awesome as it looks? It’s one of the few quilting books I’ve actually been eyeing off!
I’m looking forward to seeing the blocks that get created! 🙂
You sent everyone a book?! That is so awesome. This quilt is going to be lovely in those colors, and the drunkard path block is so versatile!
