Back again

Back again with something to show for the break from blogging.
The pattern calls for 80 Drunkards Path. That's 320 dark and light squares with 320 dark and light quarter circles which are sewn on top of the squares. The first photo shows them getting made.

 
The 2nd has the first side on.

 
Both sides on.

 
The 3rd side.

 
and finally all finished. Yay!

 
and just to finish it off the last feather border.

 
This now measures 45" and it is square, even though the photo doesn't give that impression.

It all coordinates beautifully Dorothy- love all your fabric choices! Are you going to add any embroidery or pen work to the broderie perse? Not that it needs any...

Stunning. Those drunkard paths are so rich and luscious!

I like the addition of the scrappy Drunkard's Path blocks. Did you pull all those fabrics from your fabric stash?

Looks square to me Dorothy and so beautiful. Your ears must have been burning brightly as your name was mentioned several times during our Di Ford weekend. Your fame goes before you. We have a lot to live up to but thank you for the inspiration.

Love your fabric choices for Sutton Grange Dorothy it's another beautiful quilt.
You seem to work so quickly on your quilts you must have a maid to cook, clean and iron. :-)

That is amazing to see the dimension those little blocks give to the center. Were they hard to do?
