My swap partner has received so I can finally show you guys my latest quilt - this one is a modified modern drunkard's path.... I had originally wanted to make her a love beads quilt and my library does not have the Modern Quilt Workshop - too bad too.... so I searched for something else and came upon a site that had templates for drunkard's paths... and one of them had a half circle in it and I immediately saw this quilt and knew exactly what I wanted to do with it...!

Here it is - my modified modern drunkard's path turned in to a modern wall hanging!


This was the first time I had sewn the semi circles - it is all pieced - no applique involved at all.  I am definitely going to make one of these for my own bed.. that is on my to do list.  Now to find all the oriental fabric that I am thinking of making it out of......
Usually I quilt/stipple much closer together but for this one I wanted to go simple.
 
I also made friends with my walking foot and do not know how I ever lived without it...!

Yikes, you are braver than I am!  I've looked these patterns over but always stayed away from sewing in circular.  If you're brave enough for it, maybe I should be too  Grin

That's great!  I love how many different variations there can be to one quilt square.  I like the color scheme and the quilting looks good too.

Beautiful.  The colors are awesome.  It is amazing how many ways a traditional pattern can be modernized.  What site did you find the templates on?

You can totally turn it in to the love beads quilt too very easily Smiley

This looks great. And I love the black/white look - I've just made one myself and I'm please with how it turned out. I have a circles quilt as my next project, you've inspired me to start cutting!
