I was playing with the traditional Drunkard's path variation, fallen arches, and this is the lap quilt I designed. Even if I never get to it, I thought you might enjoy seeing it.

Like it Marynel Thumbup Some one gave me EQ but I never had the patience or I guess the " want to " to learn to use it. Is QP the same ? easier ?

HP, I have spent days working with EQ and found it annoying and poorly designed. (Before my retirement, I reviewed educational software for a national magazine over several summers, so I can use many programs easily.) When I bought QP on a friend's suggstion, I immediately found it easy to use. While it has a couple of traits I don't care for, when I see a pattern I like, I can generally duplicate it. That is, if it does not rely on my non-existant drawing ability. Many things are roughly the same on both programs, for example, both allow you to use actual images of current fabrics. I was given EQ also, as my friend who owned it had died. I have seen postings from a number of people who love EQ. I don't. I tried the lessons and found them tedious as well as illogical.

Oh, I like the way you have it set up. That would be lovely. I have a friend in my bee who is doing a Christmas drunkard's path and it was really neat. Made me want to make one, but I really like the pattern you made better. Her's is set up to make wreaths if I remember correctly.

Last night I cut it out, all but the border, using some left-over fabrics. About 10 years ago, my guild was doing DP quilts, so I ordered the set of templates with everyone else, getting a good price, but I was down with pneumonia when everyone was doing them, so I just put the plastic templates into a drawer, since the pattern scared me. Last night I was roaming through the quilt index. I looked at the Fallen Arches pattern and decided to play with it, with this pattern as a result.

I watched a movie and CSI, then I had all 60 "a la mode" segments cut, clipped and ready to add to the "pie" segments. Now I'm wishing I'd used batiks. Maybe next time.

What's DP quilts? Probably something simple I should know but can't come up with a meaning?

That's Drunkard's Path, the generic name for all the qilts made with these sub units. It has a number of other names too, especially amoung those who take offense at that name.

Wow! I just got 1/4 of the quilt body completed!

Like most specialized abbreviations and vocabulary, it's only obvious when you already know it.

Yes, but we were talking about a Drunkard's Path, weren't we? Anyway, let us see it when you get it pieced.

A local friend told us that his DFiL also had a stroke. I am going to stop on my other quilts for a bit an make him a lap quilt. This is the large extended family that has commissioned 9 (I think) quilts from me. They re-organized things so that a family member I had not met before delivered stuff to Roy a few days ago. The patriarch of the family is a delightful man I have often chatted with and who has welcomed me into the family circle on several occassions.
