Where is the path?

I got this topper done for a fall table centre piece.  Ha!  Winter is here but I am hoping to get lots of machine quilting done in the new year so this will be a quick starter project.  Kind of a warm up. :)  I could NOT just piece and lay the blocks out willy nilly.  Those directional fabrics just made me so nervous.  I really do like it though.

I am sew liking Vicki's example for her Along the Drunkard's Path.

 I chose some Kona solids and thought a few Bali's would work but the more I think about it I think I need something subtler which is what appeals to me in the original design.

 All Kona's strikes me as maybe boring so I'm thinking to add some of Vicki's gradation fabrics.  I found two of Vicki's gradients that I thought were subtle but would add some movement.

I tossed out the yellows and thought I'd probably have to toss the pinks.

 I was right and then also was also thinking that grey taupe would prove troublesome.  The light are showing a bluish tinge but that must be the camera.


 hmmm....
One thing about blogging, you can put it out there and think hard before you start cutting.   ;^)

Your topper turned out great! I also love the palette that you are putting together for the new one. I've got to get Christmas decorating done do I can get back to sewing mine!
