A Quilter's Mixology & Giveaway!!!

This morning I am so excited to review A Quilter's Mixology by Angela Pingel.   I got to know Angela when I first stepped onto the internet quilting scene through the VIBees.  Angela quickly became a fast friend and a wonderful inspiration and mentor for me so of course, I am thrilled to get to share this wonderful book written by my wonderful friend ;)


Angela blogs at Cut To Pieces   But even if you haven't visited her blog before (which you totally should because she is amazing!!!) you have probably seen some of her gorgeous works.   Remember this Dream a Little Dream mini from that Doll Quilt Swap on Flickr . . . yup, that is Angela's gorgeous work!!


And Angela was the brains behind the ever popular Super Mario Brothers Quilt-A-Long ;)


And she also Won the Sliced Competition hosted by Moda.   I still totally want to make that adorable backpack!!!


So ya, Angela.  We all know her from her amazing projects and this book is no exception!!!  A Quilter's Mixology is an amazing compilation of projects that all add a contemporary twist on the traditional Drunkard's Path Block. I was fortunate enough to attend the Quilter's Mixology School House at Market in spring and see all of the beautiful projects in this book up close :) 


There are so many great projects in the book, but I wanted to share some of my personal favorites.  The first is the Nini Patch Curves Quilt.  I love that Angela took a simple 9 patch block and transformed them into beautiful flowers.  And of course, I love the bright happy colors she set against the low volume background, it is just so happy.  


The second quilt is the Butterflies quilt.   Now this one is simply adorable!!!  What a creative way to showcase the drunkard path block!!!   When my daughter saw this picture she instantly wanted a bedspread just like it ;)  Another one to add to the list ;)


And finally, the Flower Power quilt.  I think this was my favorite quilt in the book.  I love the bold and yet simple design.  And how fun to really highlight some favorite fabrics in such a big way!!!


Now, I know what your thinking, those are all curved quilts!!!  But no worries ;)  Angela has included in her book step by step instructions on Fearless Curved Piecing!!!  It really does go through all the ins ad outs to make you feel confident in piecing curves.  And, she even made this video recently for all of those people that like to see it in real time ;)



Drunkard's Path block here I come ;)   There  are so many amazing projects in the book and each one is such an original and creative way of using the drunkards path block.  Angela really did design something for everyone!!!  Be sure to follow Angela over at  Cut To Pieces because she has the official A Quilter's Mixology blog tour heading for you soon and you will get to see lots more of all her amazing projects in this book!!!

  1. I've never tried the Drunkard's Path blocks, but a long time ago, I bought an antique miniature quilt in a Drunkard's Path pattern. I've been fascinated by it ever since.

  3. I've never tried them. It's on my list, though. I even have a pattern (ModPop) that I got for my birthday that I'm dying to try, but I haven't gotten to it yet.

  4. I have never tried them but I am working on a pickledish that has opened my eyes when it comes to piecing curves. I struggle with piecing but somehow the curves are easier for me. I have a bolt of red fabric that would love to turned into a great red and white quilt. Drunkard's path is in the mix of pattern choices. Love the video!

  7. I've never tried them before ... I'm still fairly new to the whole piecing/quilting game, and the curves intimidate me. But I have seen a lot of them lately and I love all the possibilities!

    ReplyDelete
  8. I have never tried the drunkard's path block. Angela's book is one I would definitely love to have in my library of quilting books.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I like the look of Drunkard's Path blocks but haven't tried them yet. One day!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I have never tried the Drunkards Path but love the way some of the patterns turn out. I am a bit scared of sewing those curves. :)

    ReplyDelete
  11. I love curved piecing and especially Drunkard's path blocks. I made a supersize 12" quilts out of all purples for couch cuddling and my son, who is also a quilter, made a Snake in the Woods variation in all fall colors that is just fabulous. Pillows on my couch are all Drunkards Path variations. More people should try curved blocks ....after a few you wonder why you were ever scared of them!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Never heard of them, but willing to try!!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I tried it as part of a sampler quilt I made. It was a slow block with lots and lots of pinning. Seems Angela might have a different way. Thanks for hosting the give away and a chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I've never tried drunkard path blocks (although I've done a tiny bit of improv curved piecing), but they are most definitely on my bucket list, especially after seeing bits and pieces of Angela's book! Thanks for the fun review!

    1. I love doing the drunkards path block. Years ago I didn't enjoy it however now I have my GO machine I enjoy making blocks with that pattern.

  15. I have done a few quilts with the drunkard blocks and once you get the hang of them they really can be fun and addictive. Thanks for a chance to win this wonderful book. It has been on my wish list since I saw Angela's butterfly quilt. Here background fabric on this quilt was a perfect choice with all the butterflies flying around.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I've just recently started to learn about sewing curves and would welcome learning from Angela how how to do them better and more consistently. I haven't tried Drunkard's Path, but I love the various designs that Angela has come up with. She always does such fascinating things.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Have not made the drunkards path yet. In fact have not done any circular piecing yet. Hoping to after done sewing for our sons wedding. Thank you for the opportunity.

  18. I've never liked Drunkard's Path, nevermind the thought of curved piecing! But, I'm always eager to try something new, and these new quilt designs are definitely worth trying! I love this modern twist on the Drunkard's Path!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I've made a sample Drunkards path but never a complete project. This book could definitely inspire me trove forward.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Haven't tried Drunkard's Path yet but after seeing Angela's quilts at Schoolhouse and hearing her explanations, it's moved way up on my list. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I love curved piecing. I use Sharon Schamber's piec-lique method. It makes it quick and easy. I've made a few drunkard's path variations using that method. mhart037 at gmail.com

  22. Love her Dream a little Dream. I have tried Drunkards Path blocks before. Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I have been petrified to try piecing curves - even sewing triangles on the bias makes me nervous. I am absolutely in love with several of the designs in Angela's new Mixology book so I know I will have to take the plunge to make one or more of these beautiful quilts!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I would love try this pattern used in the beautiful butterfly quilt! Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I haven't tried it, but I would like to. I love the butterfly quilt.

  31. Never tried curved piecing, but I probably wouldnt have issues with it since I've been sewing since I'm a young girl and can sew clothes etc.. so curves really doesnt through me that far off kilter!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I have never tried the Drunkards Path or any other block that has curved pieces. Thanks for the great giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I have made one drunkards path block. It was years ago in a beginning quilting class through a local shop. We made it using templates and hand piecing - ugh! I didn't like using templates or hand piecing so I have never made another drunkards path block. All the quilts you showed are gorgeous so maybe it is time for me to give this block another try, but with a rotary cutter and machine this time around!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I've never tried making a Drunkards Path block but would love to try... This book would inspire me I'm sure!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Love Drunkards Path! I have made some variations of my own and find it is very inspiring to twist and turn the blocks and end up with something totally different than I started out creating.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Great review! Not tried a Drunkard's Path block and would love to have this book to help me get over my fear of curves. Thanks for a chance.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I am working on a drunkard's path quilt currently. I had purchased a template set years ago, but kept putting it off because I did not want to do all the pinning. I found a foot that fits on almost any sewing machine that makes the pinning totally unnecessary. Just match up and sew. Cute book and lovely giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Sewed a couple and didn't have real good luck. I think I just need practice.

    ReplyDelete
  39. When I first started quilting the quilt I wanted to make the most was a plain, yellow and white quilt that I admired in the 80's. I tried making that block and totally failed. Then all of a sudden modern technology of Accuquilt came along. I now LOVE Drunkard's Path blocks! It was the precision cutting that worked for me. I also sew them now with the no pin method. LOVE that block! Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I find them fascinating but have never mustered the courage to try them. One day I'll make at least one of them, they're on my to-try list. Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Drunkers path and curved blocks are my favorites. I'm one of those weird does that like what others hate, like paper piecing, and, putting in zippers. I am always looking for ways to use curved blocks in all my quilts. Your book looks like it would do the trick. Thanks for sharing your talent.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I've never tried, but now I am definitely intrigued!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I haven't sewn one yet but do have several patterns waiting to be made. :)

  59. our guild recently did a sew day for charity involving drunkard path blocks using the book by dana at old red barn quilts and they are quite enjoyable for me -- I've also taken a class at one of the conventions one curved piecing and been eyeing this book for a while.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Well, I've never attempted any Drunkard Path quilts, but am willing to give it a try. The samples you have posted are beautiful and the curves lend such a softness to the quilt. Thank you so much for this opportunity.

    ReplyDelete
  105. I have tried them once and I'm ambivalent about them, I don't hate them but then I'm in no rush to make them again! I wonder whether making a larger block would be easier than the small blocks I made?

    ReplyDelete
  106. I started a quilt about 14 years ago, forgot about it, found it 5 or 6 years ago, Made a little progress, but it's still sitting there. I like what I've seen from her book though. Much more inspiring than the traditional drunkards path.

    ReplyDelete

  130. The first few times I tried the Drunkard's Path block, I thought I would never get the hang of it! I eventually tried it again with another pattern and the Quick Curve Ruler and they actually turned out well. I only made enough for one quilt block though. :D I'd like to make a whole quilt with them one day!

    ReplyDelete
  131. Haven't tried one yet but do have a baby quilt cut out using Drunkard's path blocks.........

    ReplyDelete
  132. I've done a DP quilt where I cheated an did applique, I also have the large GO die and made a quilt with it, and shamefully I also have a DP plastic template where it's 3 pieces ( like a band in the DP) and I have had this package for years and it's still in it's wrapper!! -hanging head low..... maybe I should BUST it out!

    ReplyDelete
  133. I have never tried the drunkard's path.. I don't know if I am ready for it. I guess I have to get my feet wet sometime! better to try and fail than to not try at all..

    ReplyDelete
  134. I took a Drunkards Path class and cut all the pieces for al small wall hanging. Then in class we learned how to put them together, and I got abou 5 completed. That was several years ago. Haven't gotten back to that one. It is on my To Do list.

    ReplyDelete
  135. I haven't tried the drunkard's path yet but I'd like to having seen the ideas from this book!

    ReplyDelete
  148. Drunkards Path isn't the easiest block because of the curves but because I have sewed dresses, etc, it comes a lot easier to me. I love a challenge so I will try anything! Thanks for the opportunity to win this book!

  149. I have done drunkards paths. After watching the video that you posted I will try this method and hopefully it will make it faster for me. Thanks for sharing.

  150. I've made a few blocks with the drunkard path shape, but I've never done a whole quilt with curved piecing. I really love that butterfly quilt though, so I'm wiling to give it a try!
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  152. I love them!! There are so many great patterns you can create with them and since I tried sewing them without pins they are super easy and fast to sew!

  153. I'm new to quilting and have yet to try them. Who knows...it just might take winning this book to quilt my first one!

  154. I did a small quilt with Drunkards path in Halloween Fabric a few years ago- think My Daughter has it now. Would love to make another one. Thank you for the chance to win.

  159. I have had some experience with the drunkard's path block. Your guild made a turtle quilt where the turtles were formed using drunkard's path blocks. Our guild has also used the drunkard's path for a comfort quilt block. With lots of expert encouragement I found I quite enjoyed making them. Thanks for offering a giveaway of Angela's book. I love the Curved Nine Patch quilt.

  160. I've never tried any sort of curved piecing yet. I'll be honest - it terrifies me! But her video made it look like it's something I can tackle if I have enough patience. Patience would be key...

  161. Haven't tried it yet. But it looks intriguing. Thanks

  162. My very first quilt was a King Size Sampler quilt and I made a drunkards Path block on it. I guess the first I ever heard of the Drunkard's Path was when my son was in Nashville getting treatments for a brain tumor and an older woman who was staying at the same Hospitality House was sewing these blocks by hand for a quilt she was making. She was a beautiful inspiration and I enjoyed seeing her hand work. midwayfarms@hughes.net

  165. I have made several of the Drunkard Path blocks but have not made a whole quilt with them. I find I just have to take my time with them.

  166. I've made several curved piece blocks but not the Drunkards Path. The quilts in the book look very cute.

  167. I'm new to quilting, and curves are super scary!

  168. I haven't done a quilt with drunkard path blocks yet...Thanks for all you do with your blog and quilting.

  169. I haven't been quilting that long so I've been trying to avoid them but after seeing this, I need to at least try making a block! Thanks for inspiring and encouraging me! The book looks great and I appreciate the great giveaway!
    Happy quilting,

  173. I have tried them during a course and really enjoyed myself. I didn't like my fabric choice though and would really like to try them again. These patterns are so inspiring!

    ReplyDelete
  174. I have thus far been either not impressed or too intimidated to try it, (also that name-yuk) but these are so lovely, I could be persuaded to at least try.
    thanks!

  175. I've done one with modified drunkard's path blocks, but not the traditional ones!

    ReplyDelete
  176. I have never tried them, and am honestly a bit afraid to! The curved seams are a bit intimidating! But, maybe some day :)

    ReplyDelete
  177. I've not started on curves yet but this might be the place to start.

  178. Never done Drunkards Path, but I love the butterfly top

  179. Have made a couple of blocks for a sampler quilt. Definitely not my favorite block to make though I love the look of them.
