Going Down Many Paths - Getting Started
I apologize that it has taken me this long to populate my blog. Finding the time and project has been a big task.
No more excuses, here we go. I decided to start with the Many Paths All Around – BOM Quilt Pattern by Elisa’s Backporch Design. Coming into the quilting world from the garment sewing world, I was fascinated by the notion that you can sew on a curve without pins. What NO PINS? Amazing. For you experienced quilters and seamstresses, that may not come a new news, but I am intrigued.
So no pins does not mean no tools. As an engineer by degree, tools = toys and who does love new toys. Here are the new toys for my sewing room. Please note Elisa does include a paper template in her pattern for your to make your own 4″ Drunkards Path Template, but again I am a busy mom, it was worth the money to purchase the template outright.

Finally, choosing the fabric. Here are my starting fabrics and were else do you start, but block one.
