Radiating Diamonds

The Drunkard’s Path blocks in this wall hanging form undulating diamonds that are both curved and jagged. Tone-on-tone prints allow ample space for beautiful quilting. Fabrics are from the Tea House collection by Benartex.

Cut Fabrics

Cut pieces in the following order.

Instead of the curved piecing typical in Drunkard’s Path blocks, these blocks are appliquéd with fusible web. Click on "Download this Pattern" above for the Arc Pattern. To use fusible web for appliquéing, complete the following steps.

1. Lay fusible web, paper side up, over Arc Pattern. Use a pencil to trace pattern 64 times, leaving at least 1⁄2" between tracings. Cut out each fusible-web shape roughly 1⁄4" outside traced lines.

2. Following manufacturer’s instructions, press fusible-web shapes onto wrong sides of fabrics indicated in instructions that follow. Cut out fabric shapes on drawn lines. Peel
off paper backings.
