Drunkard's Path - Finished Quilt Top and Link-up


Well, I can't believe the end is here! I have had so much fun with this quilt-along - and really my favorite part has been seeing all of your quilts progress, and especially hearing that this QAL inspired some of you to try something you wouldn't have otherwise. I can't tell you how happy that makes me! I hope you all enjoyed it and can't wait to see your finished quilt tops.

Drunkard's Path Quilt Top

Speaking of which, I finished my own quilt top yesterday afternoon, just in time - and unfortunately at a time when photography conditions/lighting weren't great. So apologies for the somewhat grainy photo. I am excited about how the design turned out though and can't wait to quilt and bind this so that we can start using it as our couch throw! Can you believe that this will be the first quilt that I have ever kept? Lawson was very excited when I told him that this quilt was for us.

Your turn! Link up your finished quilt top using the linky below for a chance to win one of the fabulous prizes donated by Fabric Shoppe and Fresh Squeezed Fabrics. The linky is open for a week and then Kristie and I will draw winners next Monday 12/5. You can link up either here or on Kristie's blog, it will work either way :). If you have a blog, link up your blog post so we can all come say hi, but if you don't have a blog, feel free to link up a flickr photo instead.




Thanks again so much for joining in the QAL!  I hope you all had as much fun as I did!!

{This post is part of the Drunkard's Path Quilt-Along that I am hosting with Kristie from OCD.  Check out my Drunkard's Path QAL page for the schedule and links to the posts so far, and feel free to join in any time!}

  6. Oh I just LOVE how you layed out your quilt top! It looks fabulous, and the colours are amazing. It doesn't take good lighting to see how great this is going to be. :)

  10. Oh it`s amazing! I have loved this QAL but have come to a spluttering stop as my backing fabric hasn`t turned up. Gah! If it arrives tomorrow or Wednesday I`ll do my best to finish up. Many thanks to you and Kristie for a great QAL and I tried something new and it`s now my favourite versatile block. Woot woot!
