An inspired idea...

I was taken with Angela Pingel's book, Quilter's Mixology and her clever ways of modernizing the drunken path block. She shares so many lovely and inspiring designs in her book, however, the one design that especially caught my eye, was her ornament block. 
 Inspired by her gorgeous ornament quilt, I couldn't resist making up my own design using ornament blocks with a extra seasonal take... in the form of appliqueing on some text. My individual drunken path blocks finish at 2 1/2" square, so that was some tiny curved piecing, but I managed it without pins.  Looks like all that time spent sewing Barbie doll clothes has finally paid off! ;o)

Curves ahead

Working on something new.  That's what long weekends are for, right? ;o)
Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian readers!

Apparently, I needed a little blogging break and didn't realize I did, until I took it. ;o)  I was feeling burnt out.

Basting is underway on the Swoon quilt I started last year.
