Drunkard's Path Templates

Don't you think it's fun to enter a giveaway? Well, thanks to Baycreek Quilting in Oregon, I’m sharing the fun by hosting a giveaway now through Sunday, February 13. Two winners will be selected!

Baycreek Quilting specializes in making sturdy, 1/8" thick, laser-cut acrylic templates. Baycreek's rotary cutting templates are available in a variety of shapes - angles, curves, one-patch shapes, applique designs and quilting designs.

If you're a quilter who has been struck by hexie madness take a look as these hexagon options.
Don't miss a look at Joseph's Coat templates either!

Drunkard's Path
Two people will be randomly selected to win a set of Drunkard's Path acrylic templates. That's two pieces each, of 3", 4", 5" and 6" templates! A $30 value!

This is an international giveaway! Everyone has a chance to win.

For one entry: Comment. That's it. Say whatever's on your mind, or answer one or both of these questions: "What template or single patch shape would you like to have? Do you prefer machine-piecing or hand-piecing, or is there a place for both in your life?"

You might already know I'm a fan of hand-piecing. It's so portable and relaxing! See my projects here.

For another entry: Post about this giveaway on your own blog. Then come back here and comment to let me know you've done that.

As a bonus, bonus, bonus...
Between now and Sunday, February 13, if you place an order from Baycreek Quilting, you will receive free shipping, and that means anywhere in the world. How wonderful is that?!

To receive free shipping, just type "Flourishing Palms" in the comments section of your on-line order, or mention "Flourishing Palms" if you phone-in (US only) your order: 541-888-2838.

Could it be you who'll win a set of Drunkard's Path templates to cut and piece a pretty block like this?
Note: I'll have to draw another winner if your comments appear as noreply-comment@blogger.com. It means I have no way to email you to tell you you've won. To check your settings, follow this path: Dashboard; Edit Profile; "Show my email address;" Save Profile.

  1. I'm not sure if any one has ever won a contest after being the first one to enter....but, I'll go first anyway! I'd like to have the dresden plate template...never tried that block and have been seeing some beautiful ones out there in blogland. Thanks for the chance to win the drunkard path templates...that's another one I've not made!

  2. Just did a lovely long comment, but as soon as I pressed Post Comment, it disappeared. :( I was saying how blogger was behaving for me tonight. It doesn't usually.
    I mainly machine piece, but have recently got hooked on hexagons. Loving the hand piecing! :)

  4. Hmmm...I'm not very creative on this particular Friday... but I do love me some Drunkard Path blocks, these templates would come in handy!

  5. I'd love to win any of the curved templates. At the moment, I just avoid curves all together. Those templates look just fabulous.

  6. I've never used templates before as they seem pretty complicated & I'm just starting out. I'll give it a try though should I be the lucky winner. Thanks for the chance to win! :)

  7. I considered spending money on a Go cutter, but then I realized that I actually enjoy cutting pieces as much as any other aspect of quilting and more than some aspects. I am making a square in a square postage stamp quilt with tiny pieces. My hubby cut me acrylic templates to cut those. Many hours of cutting have gone into that quilt. And piecing - although I do them as leaders and enders. I would love to win the Drunkards Path templates. It may be the only way I ever make one of these quilts.

  8. This is a sweet giveaway! I've done a few projects with piecing and have always, always wanted to do a drunkards path wall hanging - winning this would be a great incentive.

  9. Googling Drunkards Path looking for design alternatives...found you! Fingers crossed!
    Working on my 1st one.EVER. Right now :)

    Was just thinking a trip to fabric store for some of those templates before I test another size. I need to do a deeper search for my smaller rotary cutter. I know I saw it recently...

  10. I have posted about your giveaway on my blog Linda.

    And in answer to hand piecing - I love to handpiece. My last few quilts have mostly been by hand as I dont need more big quick quilts and I like the process of cutting templates, drawing them and having a quiet time sewing them together and watching a quilt grow. I am a Hexagon Queen and have made several quilts using hexagons. I use some plastic templates but missing in my collection are some drunkards path. I have a book of patterns they could make up but never got around to using it - maybe if I won some I could. PS I love the block you added - that layout would never have occurred to me.

  11. I absolutely love Drunkard's Path and appreciate you offering a set of these templates on your blog.

    Re the floods and devastation here in Australia ... it just seems to keep on coming, at the moment. Luckily all of our friends in the affected areas have come through all right.

  14. Although the Drunkard' Path has always been one of my favorite quilt blocks, the thought of making my own templates has always deterred me. These acrylic templates are a great idea.

  15. Have a drunkard path on my list of projects and if I won the templates I guess I would have to go gabric shopping.

  16. Neat giveaway. I have a quilt that I have started hand piecing which I enjoy but I do more machine piecing.

  18. Well as much as I would LOVE to be a fan of machine piecing, I am without a machine, so I am going to have to go with.. Hand piecing.. LOL. I do find it relaxing to sit in front of the television and watch a show, and stitch away. I am currently working on a Hexagon quilt as well as a new venture into applique..which I find beautiful, and fascinating!

  21. Thanks for this opportunity! Making a Drunkard's path quilt is on my list! I love the look of handwork, but due to tendinities in my wrists, I depend on my machine to do the work. I have also fallen in love with the tumbler shape. It makes an interesting background for appliqued pieces. Thanks again!

  22. I was just looking at a curved piece block this weekend, thinking about whether I could take that on, and if it would work for this idea I've had percolating in my brain. The drunkard's path template would be perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  23. ooo, I have always been so afraid to make curved pieces. Your quilt is beautiful. Maybe the template would be the answer :-)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Thank you for the chance to win the templates. I would love to use the drunkard's path in some quilts. I love to hand piece as you do. I'm working on a Psalms quilt at present and enjoy the peace of each block.

  25. What a great giveaway! some curved templates would be good - I'd love to try the Dahlia!
    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I would love to try some curved work. I like both hand and machine stitiching. Thanks for such a great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I do both machine and hand piecing. Usually hand piecing for small pieces that cannot machine sew or need special "fitting". My mother wants to make a drunkards block quilt and I would like to make a circle quilt. Please enter us into your great giveaway. The other template that might be on my list is hexagon. Thanks for the opportunity. alternate email mlwright29 (at) hotmail (dot) com

  28. Sewing on curves isn't the easiest thing I've ever done, but the Drunkard's Path has always been one of my favorite patterns to drool over. Thanks for this great give-away! ~karen

  29. I am always so excited about giveaways - we all know I LOVE PRESENTS! But...I never win. I think it's time!!

  30. With all those templates one can do more than Drunkard`s Path blocks. Super give-away. Thanks for the chance. I find hand-piecing to be most relaxing, and love to hand-appliqué. Greetings from Seoul

  31. You know how addicted to hand piecing I am! I've travelled the world with scraps of fabric always at the ready for a quiet stitch wherever I find myself killing time. So many quilt possibilities present themselves as I've been browsing the beautiful Baycreek Quilting website this week, and I'd LOVE to win your giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh please count me in. I do love the drunkard's path quilt. I made a small one once and the fabrics resembled what you would see in cowboy shirts, so instead of Drunkards Path, I called mine Happy Trails :)

    I love hand piecing and machine piecing and just about any kind of handwork there is.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Would love a chance to win the templates. Thanks for a great giveaway.

  34. Curves...one thing that scares me to try. I have an awesome pattern for drunkards path that I've been too terrified of to try...perhaps these would be the key to overcoming my fears!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I like to try the Swirling Star template.
    Thanks for the chance :)

  36. I machine piece and would love to try the drunkard's path block.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oh, I can't tell you how bad I'd like to win these templates. I recently bought a curve master foot, and am so eager to try using it with a drunkard's path block! What single die would I like, hexies! No doubt on that one! Hand or machine? Both! Thanks for a chance to win!

  40. Hi Linda, I prefer handpiecing, it is so relaxing.:)
    I have had a look at the template sets. the jelly roll ones are great! I think for a single template, I would like hexagon or tumbler. I have enjoyed reading your blog, and looking at the lovely applique blocks, I am now a follower. Thank you for your kind thoughts regarding my Country -Australia, it has been a year for disasters here. bye for now, Sandy.

  47. I've made some Drunkard's Path blocks and used them as a border on a quilt and I absolutely loved it. I've got a photo clipped out of a magazine of a full Drunkard's Path quilt that I'd like to make one day. These templates sure would make it easier...thanks for the chance to win!

  61. Hi Linda
    I was going to write and say Congrats on the slippers. I bought Homespun today, and lo and behold there were your slippers. Very nice.
    Now about the piecing - for me there is room for both, but at the moment I am enjoying handpiecing my hexies, and my smaller hexagon quilt.
    I would love to win the Josephs Coat templates. Thanks for making it International.
    Cheers
    Sue
