Drunkard’s path makes a puzzle out of the Pebble Play quilted wall hanging


Yesterday we made all our drunkard path blocks and are now ready to assemble the quilted wall hanging.

Following the diagram, assemble the blocks into rows and sew the blocks into rows. This part always feels like putting together a puzzle. Press. Sew the rows together.


Blocks laid out on design wall to sew together.

Lay out the blocks from Northcott’s Naturescapes collection as shown and sew together.


From the remaining pebble fabric, cut 1½” strips of fabric. Cut two 24½” pieces and sew to the top and bottom. Piece the remaining strips as needed and sew to the sides. Press.

Quilt and bind. I chose to quilt an easy free motion design in the blue sections and petal shapes in the earthy sections.

Enjoy your quilted wall hanging, and keep in mind, it would make a fabulous bed or table runner too. I’m imagining this runner at a lake or beach house or cottage and sewing accessories to match!

I am a quilter who loves quilting outside the box especially when it comes to 3D and embellishments. My work has been published in books and magazines and I currently sit on the Board of Directors for the Canadian Quilters’ Association. When I am not in my studio, I am working as a Social Media Manager.

    What a great way to use that pebble fabric. I have some and was going to use it in a quilt featuring a castle, but decided I’d like the visual impact better if I used grey fabric and FMQ’ed my own rocks.

    Like the quilt pieces but i really like the stone patterned fabric.

  8. I have always liked Drunkard’s Path; but, am still too scared to make one.
