My first disappointment was that the tiny rotary cutter that was recommended to be purchased to use with the template was just a little too small, and the blade would not reach down far enough to cut the fabric. How did Jenny Doan make this work in her video? What a bummer, and I was all geared up to work on this project that day. So I reluctantly made a trip to JoAnn Fabrics for matching thread and a bigger smallish cutter. I bought the Fiskars cutter which worked just fine. A regular size rotary cutter blade is too big to make the curves of this template.
I then had a bunch of 2.5" squares to sew together. You can find many different layout possibilities if you do a quick Google or Pinterest search. Some of the layouts have an obvious staggered look, hence the name Drunkard's Path. This is what I decided upon.
I liked using the circle cutting template. The only other disappointment (the same one I have with any quilting template that isn't Creative Grids) is that it isn't made by Creative Grids :-) I guess this is going to be a table runner, and I will say that the Heat N Bond makes the fabric a little stiff. I would recommend using the lightest weight fusible you can on a project like this. Since this isn't meant to be a cuddly quilt that's not a problem here.
Even though this is only a half finish, I'll link up over at Crazy Mom Quilts Finish It Up Friday. Thanks for visiting!
