|Scrappy Drunkard's Path quilt, c. 1910, Michigan, Wonkyworld|
See what happened when I tried this layout with my blocks, made of similar-valued fabrics? The pathway design disappears and it just looks like a mess. So, circles it is! Just as an aside, I should point out that the pathway design would have been a little easier because there aren't as many seams to match when you sew the blocks together, but hopefully my piecing was precise enough that everything will match up nicely for me.
Here's the final layout for this quilt (drumroll, please...):
|Final Layout for our Drunken Dragons quilt|
I can't wait to get these blocks sewn together so I can move on to layering (yuck), basting (double yuck), and machine quilting (scary-but-exciting, like a roller coaster) this quilt so it can snuggle around my little Lars at night!
