In case you don’t have the AccuQuilt GO and don’t want to use the printed template linked to the instructions, you can buy a 7 inch finished Drunkard’s Path template from Marti Mitchell.

My first version of this quilt uses Homespuns and has a border. My next version will be a smaller donation quilt according to the instructions. Several size options are included.


Here’s my finished quilt

Here’s a Green and Purple version


The addition of applique circles turns my Drunkard’s Path blocks into Ladybugs!

    I just bought a go, and the first die I purchased was the DP. So much easier than my sons “turtle” quilt I made with a DP plastic template to cut around.
    Do you know of any other shapes I can make with this die? So far I’ve made a flying bird, 2 chick types of birds, a basket, 2 types of butterflies and of course the turtle

    Thanks for any help,
    Best Wisher,


  2. I love your Drunkard’s Path quilt. I’ve always liked this pattern and homespun fabrics, so to me they look fabulous together. I’ve been collecting thifted man’s plaid shirts, which may end up in a quilt like this. Thanks for sharing.

    I NEVER would’ve thought to use homespuns with this patterns (too stretchy, I’d think) but I just love the way it looks! So cozy! OK… another one on my “to do list”. Thanks for all the inspiration! I love this site!
