My Drunkard's Path

Okay, you need to view this quilt from a galloping horse!!  But it is finished.  I hated it all the time I was quilting it -- until I added the fill stitches in the light areas.  I used two different fills for the areas but I like the texture it gave it.  My lines don't all line up, but that's okay.  I like it now.

It is a small lap quilt.  I didn't realize how hard it was to come up with something to quilt on drunkard's path blocks even in the baby bunting setting.

Two of my nieces' quilts

This is Pat's houndstooth quilt:
Many thanks to the internet.  I had a hard time deciding what to do but then Jean Shute (I think that was who suggested this) on MQR had suggested this for a houndstooth quilt.  I like how it turned out.
And here is Phyllis' quilt.  Love the serpentine border.

I used Hobbs wool batting in Phyllis' quilt.  I wanted the appliques to "pop".  I like how it turned out also. 
I am so proud of my nieces, Pat, Paula and Phyllis, all do great work!!!  So glad that love of quilting has passed to the next generation!!!  Love those girls!
