A New Spin – Tile Floor & Peacock Alley

Today we have another two-for-one blog because both quilts use fabric from Windham Fabrics.

The first quilt is Tile Floor and it is uses the corner half-square triangle variation

TileFloor

Tile Floor  from A New Spin On Drunkard’s Path – C&T Publishing – August 2016

This is a quick and easy quilt to put together because the Drunkard’s Path blocks are alternated with simple squares with corner half-square triangles.  The fabrics in this quilt are by Marcia Derse and Melanie Testa.  Alternated color ways are presented in the book – one of which give a Harlequin-esque look with a black and white background and bright primary colors in the Drunkard Path Block.  I would love to see this one done in batiks – hmmm – I might just have to raid my stash and stitch one up.

The second quilt is Peacock Alley using the fabric line Enchanted by Sarah Filke.

PeacockAlley

Peacock Alley  from A New Spin on Drunkard’s Path C&T Publishing – August 2016

This medallion quilt showcases the wonderful focus fabric print from the line.  Drunkard’s Path blocks here help form borders around the central medallion.  The outer border uses the Rail Fence Variation in the frame unit.  This is an easy way to give a complex look to the border by cutting the frame unit out of strip sets.

So, what fabric would you use if you created Tile Floor or Peacock Alley
