Drunkard’s Path

Sleeping it off

Sleeping it off

One of the Hittys is taking an innocent nap under this pretty quilt.  Too bad about its’ suggestive name…This pattern is supposed to be pieced, but I couldn’t fathom sewing all the little curves, so I applied a 1 1/2 inch circle to a 2 inch square and then cut the square into quarters.  Re-stitching the little squares into this pattern was maybe not so accurate but at least I didn’t have to fiddle with thirty-six one-inch square blocks with annoying curved seams. 



The Quilt is entirely made of recycled Yoyos, except for the Backing-and-border, which is a contemporary quilting fabric with a reproduction 1930’s print. To see other mini quilts made with the old Yoyo quilt fabrics, Click here.

  1. Oh dear. Not only a suggestive name, but all those signs of beer! I hope that the thankfully anonymous Hitty is merely the victim of some nap time prank, and no more than that.

  2. Well done, Quimper Hittys….it’s not a wonder that this quilt is called what it’s called….your teeny little pieces surely reflect how crazy a quilter can get working with this pattern….those little pieces came out so well with the sizes you were working with. Another lovely!

  3. You deserve a lightbulb for over the top of your head for thinking of that very clever way to achieve the quarter-circle-over-square pattern!
