A New Spin on Drunkards Path - John Kubiniec

John Kubiniec's "A New Spin on Drunkard's Path" is an inspirational delight. The first half is bursting with information providing the reader with everything they need to know in order to create their very own version of a Drunkard's Path quilt design. I was very please to see that John included snippets about his own quilting journey and thoughs on design. As a quilter, I'm always fascinated by other quilter's artistic journeys. His Tool Talk is a helpful way for him to share the professional tips and tricks that he has picked up along the way and I appreciate his willingness to help other quilters gain insight into easier ways to make their beautiful quilts happen as painlessly as possible.

The last half is devoted to easy-to-follow patterns of Drunken Path quilts, along with a wide range of exceptionally interesting borders. Every quilt you make using this terrific book will be a unique creation, all your own!

Here's the schedule of blogs participating in the tour. Head to these sites each day for more info about the book and more giveaways!

Purple was my favorite color as a kid and I was teased about it. I might just be stubborn but I'm still taking a stand for PURPLE

My favorite color is yellow - bright and sunny

JANET said...

Red is my favorite. It is so dramatic in quilts. That is what drew me to John's cover quilt! ndfromsd at gmaildotcom

Donna W said...

Green is my favorite color. It reminds me of outdoors, where you can find so many different colors and shades of green.

tac73 said...

Purple has been my favorite color since I was young. It reminds me of my grandmother.

GranChris said...

I love blue in quilts but I do love a red and white quilt. Just made a 1910 red and white vortex. I really like this book. I can't wait to start making a few of the quilts in here.

Allison said...

Red is my favorite color, but dark red like burgundy. And I have no idea why it is my favorite--maybe because it makes quilts look antique.

Jayne said...

Purple has always been a favourite colour and you will find it in many of my quilts

Kristine said...

Hands down I'm a purple girl. I need to branch out but I've always been in love with purple!

Jittina said...

I love all shades of blue. They are so soothing and calming.

Tina Jeo said...

I love blue and there are so many shades that you can use. tljeo(at) yahoo (dot) com

Liz Horgan said...

I love using any shade of green in my quilts and projects--maybe because I'm 1st generation Irish married to a Kerryman?

Julie said...

Purple is my favorite color. Purple combines the calm stability of blue and the fierce energy of red. The color purple is often associated with royalty, nobility, luxury, power, and ambition. Purple also represents meanings of wealth, extravagance, creativity, wisdom, dignity, grandeur, devotion, peace, pride, mystery, independence, and magic.

I am the Queen of my castle. The wealth of my creativity is expressed with fabric and thread in every quilt I display with pride.

Purple is a favorite color. I remember when I was younger at work someone called me the 'lavender lady'. ;-D

Thanks for a chance to win.

I like green - it goes with everything. I always think about flowers and green stems as my analogy.

madhappycrafter said...

I love all colors - I paint and grow flowers. But the color purple has been a favorite since I was a small child. I feel calm when I look at it, and I think it looks good with every other color. Thanks for the chance to win this inspiring book!

My favorite color has been YELLOW since I was a kid. It must have been the color of the life-giving sun that intrigued me.

Judy Forkner said...

How can I have just one favorite color? I love most colors & especially the way they interact with each other. Complementary, Analogous, Triad, Split Complementary--they're all wonderful!
If I have to choose one, I guess I'd say blue--it was my favorite as a child & I'm still pretty partial to it. Especially in the blue green range--Turquoise!

Margaret said...

I'm a blue girl myself--from the robin's egg blue of a winter sky to the navy of just before night.

gigi said...

Green is my favorite color. Not sure why, but it just makes me feel happy.
Thanks for a chance to win! gigiv13@gmail.com

OhioLori said...

Blues...shades of water & sky! :) No reason really...blue has just always been my favorite color...but the happy bright fun shades of blue.

Sonya said...

Without a doubt, my favorite color is blue.... so many lovely shades to choose from!

Jennifer Dyck said...

My favorite color? Oh that's so hard! I love them all! But today if I had to pick, it would be purple, just something special about purple. Thanks for the chance to win! Excited to try the quilts out in this book!

Laura said...

My favorite color is teal because it goes with so many other colors and has a lovely feel to it in my mind.

Allison CB said...

I love purple especially with teal. I have always liked it - my fav dress that I made in Home Ec was deep purple (crimplene which now makes me feel very old when I think about it!!!) mumbird3(at)gmail(dot)com

SHLyman said...

Love, love, love purples. Always have. Got lots of teasing in high school.

selleck said...

I enjoy all shades of red because I find them warm and comforting.

Kathy E. said...

I am really interested in getting better with sewing curved pieces and would love this book! My favorite color has always been purple. It just makes me happy and confident. My sewing room and laundry room is painted in purple. If I'm the only one to use those rooms, it may as well make me happy!

Melissa Gerber said...

I love blue (my favorite combination is blue and green). It calms and relaxes me. I love it in fabric, clothing, and decorating (we have 3 rooms painted blue -- all different shades). melissagerber93@gmail.com

Crickets Corner said...

My favorite color is aqua. I think I like it so much because it reminds me of blue/green sea glass. It's my favorite crayon out of the crayola box, its a calming color and it can go with lots of other colors. edrin1932 (at) gmail (dot) com Thanks for the chance and for joining the hop.

Michelle Morrison said...

Green, I think because it's so versatile. The newness of spring, or the beauty of the sunlight on the leaves, or the serenity of a shaded path...

Avon said...

Red is my favorite but I haven't met a color I didn't like avonbi@gmail.com

Anonymous said...

My favourite colour is blue. I've always liked it and often wear it. I like all shades from light to dark, from aqua blues to purple blues and all the shades in between.

Beth in TN said...

Orange is my favorite color. I gravitated to it after having red at the top of my list for ages. Maybe orange is mellower, so as I've aged, so has my taste in color? richreword at yahoo dot com

Deb B. said...

My favorite color is blue. I am not sure why it is my favorite, perhaps because I find it to be a soothing color.

Vicki said...

My favourite colour is teal. It's my favourite colour to wear and I'm drawn to quilts that are teal with a dash of orange here and there.

My favorite color is blue. There are so many different shades of blue that one can create a whole scrap quilt from one basic color. azborn at cableone dot net
