Drunkards Path Using Invisible Machine Applique

By Dawn Cameron-Dick

The Drunkards Path is a wonderful, traditional one block design that is infinitely adaptable. Sadly, many people avoid this block because of perceived difficulty with the curved piecing. Now you’ll be able to make any size and type of Drunkards Path using Dawn’s signature technique – Invisible Machine Applique instead of piecing!

Dawn will demonstrate how to make your templates, prepare the pieces and set up your machine to create a lovely, invisible applique stitch.  She’ll introduce you to various, alternative ways to use this block to design fun shapes like a turtle, NY Beauty and a blue bird!

You don’t need anything but the tools you probably already have at home so…you will be up and running quicker than you can say “Show me your Drunkards Path”!

This video is yours to watch as often as you wish so you can stop, rewind and watch again and again. Enjoy!

After moving to Belgium she continued as the only professional, English speaking quilting teacher in the Benelux area.

Once Dawn gained her British citizenship in the early 1990s she began teaching fulltime in the UK and expanded to teaching worldwide including the Houston Quilt Festival and QuiltEuro. She has written four books including one for C&T Publishing. Two on her signature technique Invisible Machine Applique and two on her speciality, Needles & Threads. Dawn has presented on a TV sales channel, filmed classes for Just Hands on TV and filmed her own DVDs. “I am delighted to have taught and lectured at every Festival of Quilts since its beginning and continue to make my livelihood traveling the world to teach. I’ve now opened my own studio in Somerset where I offer workshops for 1-5 students in a very friendly and personal environment.” Said Dawn.
