I've never tried them before, but I've been wanting to ever since I first saw the popular
drunkard's path quilt block. Here's a beautiful example of the drunkard's path block in action:

And here's another way to arrange the blocks:

I'm excited and eager to add this technique to my bag of tricks. I hope you are too!
If you're new to my sewing challenges, you can visit my challenge page and visit all my previous challenge homepages. Basically, I provide a challenge and participants attempt to meet it.
The focus is on:
- committing ourselves to learn/try something new,
- to step outside our sewing boxes, and
- to meet a reasonable deadline
Make a something new with curved seams and finish it by Jan . 31, 2013.
By curved seams, I'm referring to flat curved seams like you would see in a drunkard's path quilt block.
I presented the drunkard's path quilt block as inspiration,
but as long as your project has one or more curved seams, it qualifies.
If you're already an expert on curved seams, please challenge yourself to use this technique in a new way.
This is a great opportunity to go crazy and get really crafty--so go for it!
