Week 39: Quarter

I liked this because it is a Drunkard’s Path style of patchwork but each quarter has a different arc so when you put them together, it’s kind of funky. I took the chair from another reference because I like this type of bentwood “ice cream chair” and own two of them myself.

I want to make that pillow!


Materials I used:
Staedtler 2H pencil
Faber-Castell Polychromos coloured pencils
Van Gogh watercolours
Lamy Safari pen with medium nib and Noodler’s Blue Upon the Plains of Abraham ink.

    What a beautiful idea for quarter! I had to laugh when I saw you called it a “drunkard’s path” style of patchwork. If I tried quilting, it would probably come out looking just like that without even trying!


    • What, you are a good friend with Sharyn and you haven’t tried quilting???

      Have a try Bev…

      I made at least one of these blocks, sewn by hand for a sampler quilt, and I also made a full-size quilt with a modified arc that made an ogee shape–gave the book away and can’t remember the author’s name, but I made that about 25 years ago and machine quilted it for an Uncle. I sewed the arcs in that by hand too and then pieced them together on the machine.

      Books always say how easy this is to piece on the machine but I could never get the hang of it. I like hand piecing anyway so enjoyed trying the pattern. The top I made it for is called the “Love in a Mist Sampler Quilt” and I finished that 25 or 28 years ago. Still have to quilt it but I’m hoping to get some of the oldies done next year.
