I can't believe it is my turn to talk about Girt By Sea!
Where has the year gone?

Girt By Sea Quilt

When I was approached to be a part of this project, I immediately wanted to do Drunkard's Path blocks.
The first reason was because it's my favourite block and the 2nd reason... because I love making them.

Girt By Sea - Drunkard's Path

The colours were chosen, I think they look like the sea!

Drunkard's Path

When I piece Drunkard's Path Blocks, I use three pins.
Fold both the bottom and top fabrics in half, and match together with a pin.
Right sides together of course!
I then pin both ends.
I find it easier to manipulate the fabric as I sew.
If you have the option of the needle down position on your machine, use it!
Sew slowly round the curve matching the edges of both fabrics.
I always place the larger piece on the bottom.

With these blocks I ironed towards the dark side to make a neater finish.

Look at those beautiful curves!

I had the pleasure of sewing the Girt By Sea Quilt together so I was the first one to see the finished result.
I love how my Drunkard's Path blocks play along next to the previous round and in parts look like the Sydney Opera House!
