I have made drunkards path block units before, using the no-pin method, and then trimming. However I found trying that with these pieces led to wonky, too-small units. So pins it was. Initially three pins per unit, it was still a struggle to get the pieces feeding smoothly under the foot, so eventually I started using five pins.
Over the last few days, some sessions of pinning, followed by sessions of chain piecing, have led to these wonderfully scrappy piles of drunkards path units! Next up will be block assembly, we have some vacation coming up so I may fall behind, … hmm, I wonder if I should take my featherweight to the cottage?
Ta ta for now, I have to go sew that last unit so I’m legit for the linkup with Melissa at Happy Quilting for the Summer Solstice Quilt-along.
