I've made Drunkards Path blocks before. Traced and cut out the template, marked my fabric, cut the pieces out with scissors, and hand pieced them together. I've always thought I'd like to have a small quilt made up in this block, oh, but the time!
And now, in 2011, I was able to cut these is less than 30 seconds.
Fabrics Etc has an industrial Accuquilt Studio, it's big, it looks expensive and it is simply amazing! Carol and Tracey had it out Sat afternoon for demos so I took some fabric down to try it out. No, I'm not starting something new this weekend, but I'm now prepared to prep for this future quilt. Here's how it worked. The above pieces were cut from 12 1/2" squares so in less than a minute I had the working pieces for 24 blocks.
Beyond the Cherry Tree. I'm prepping 8 - 10 at one time, so it will be a while before I have the next block completed.
Hope your weekend has been wonderful!
