The December issue of British Patchwork and Quilting magazine has landed and I’m excited as you can find my Ombré Bubbles lap quilt as one of the projects.
Made from delightful fabrics in ombré batik shades from EQSUK they really pop with warm colours. The collection is called Landscape Batiks from Kingfisher Fabrics. They would also be perfect for textile art due to the colours which change and drift across the surface.

Made using the Drunkard’s Path block which is really fun and versatile, you can play with the layout to make different designs. The Drunkard’s Path block was named for the weaving path that you can get using this block. It was also adopted in the early 20th century by the prohibition movement.
I use a simple three pin method to sew the curves and it is much easier than you think. The ombré fabrics work so well as you can change the colour balance by using a different section of the fabric. If you are interested in a workshop on the curves of the Drunkard’s Path block, contact me at Helen@strictlyquilting.com.
