I made a top for our charity group that was based on a pattern called "Mix and Mingle" by Natalie Crabtree. It was such a modern and cute quilt that I just had to make it, but with some improv blocks.
It's 59" W x 83" H.
I hope you like it.

I am making a quilt that has drunkard's path blocks dispersed throughout the top. I saw the quilt in a shop in Walla Walla, called "Stash". They didn't have the pattern for sale, so I looked it up after the trip. It was a quilt designed by Natalie Crabtree called "Mix and Mingle". And it was so modern and cute that I knew I just had to make a version of it. When I say version, what I mean is that I like improv and intuitive placement instead of blindly following a pattern.
Anyway, here is the process I used for the drunkard's path improv blocks.
Stack the two colors together, right sights up. Cut a gentle curve with a rotary cutter about 2/3" away from the left edge. You can see the ruler below is at about 3.75" on the 6" square.
And its just that easy to make an improv drunkard's path block.

Clark County Quilters in Vancouver is celebrating their 50th year from the very start of the guild. The guild has put out a challenge to make a quilt celebrating the 50 year anniversary and to enter it into the quilt show in April 2024. I did a rough drawing of balloons and a banner.
