Drunkard's Path Quilt Along - Week 3

This week I've gotten all the Drunkard's Path blocks sewn, as well as the 9.5-inch blocks cut from strip strata that make up the outer borders.
Cross the Drunkard’s Path Quilt Along
The whole thing is on the design wall now, ready to be sewn together.

I should say most of it is on the wall; some of it had to go onto the floor, etc.  I wanted to see the whole thing laid out, as best I could.

That's my little portable design board leaning up against the wall.  It has come in handy to transport pieces from one room to the next, keeping them in the right order for sewing.  It'd be easy for me to get turned around with these directional pieces otherwise.

I hope to have a finished quilt top by next week!

P.S. - As usual, I am excited by the scraps I have left over.


Maybe something like this will go on the back as the basis for the label?

Love your blocks, and the layout is great. You will have a lovely quilt for a man or woman. I hope there is someone special in mind for this one.

I amazed at the speed of this project.
Are you going to machine quilt the top to the batting and back piece?

I'm not at all surprised that you could get turned around with all those pieces! This quilt is going to be amazing. Who would've thought that you could make the humble plaid shirts look so incredible. Love it!
