Triple Play! Drunkard’s Path from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Drunkard's Path Triple Play by Missouri Star Quilt Company.

Burano is a tiny Italian island known for handmade lace and sherbet-hued homes.

This week, the Doan girls are stitching up 3 new Drunkard’s Path quilts, and they’re just as colorful and charming as the streets of Burano! 

Watch the latest Triple Play tutorial to learn how to transform layer cakes and charm packs into Drunkard’s Path quilts that are quick, easy, and “sew” much fun!

Triple Play! Sparkling Stars from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Sparkling Stars Triple Play by Jenny, Natalie, and Misty of the Missouri Star Quilt Company.

A Round Robin quilt is the sweetest of group projects. It is passed among friends, each adding blocks or borders of their own.

10 or 12 of us gathered to chat, snack, and quilt. We took turns choosing patterns: Churn dash, log cabin, bowtie. 

When it came time for Jenny to pick a block, she chose the Missouri Star, and … everyone kind of groaned. The Missouri Star was waaay too tricky! Boy, have things changed!
