Arabian Nights II

This is my second design using the Drunkard's Path block. The first one was red and white (see it here). I chose Blueberry Crumb Cake by Blackbird Designs for Moda, along with off-white for contrast.

As before, I used Quiltsmart interface for the Drunkard's Path blocks (did not feel like sewing curves...). The blocks come together nicely, and are finished off with a tiny zigzag stitch around the edges, hardly noticeable because it is done with monofilament.

The quilt measures 48" x 48".  Surprisingly, quilting it wasn't as much fun, probably because I started it between Christmas and New Year, while my boys were at home. To add insult to injury, I committed crime #2 by not finishing the quilting at that time, instead waiting weeks to get back to it...

I must have been thinking about bean sprouts when I quilted it!

All the prints were quilted with monofilament.

 I really liked the design, though, and may try it again with two colors.What do you think?
