Modern Fundamentals: Quarter Circles

Page Content: 

In each issue of the MQG Journal, Yvonne Fuchs will teach us the Modern Fundamentals of quilting. In this issue of the MQG Journal, we will explore how to make Quarter Circle quilt blocks also known as Drunkard's Path blocks. 

For quilters new to sewing curves, the larger the radius of the curve, the easier the fabrics will be to handle while you learn.

Yvonne is a former aerospace engineer turned modern quilter, designer, and technical editor. She was introduced to quilting by her paternal grandmother in high school when her grandmother offered to hand quilt a twin-size quilt to use in her college dorm room if Yvonne made the quilt top. Now, 25 years later, Yvonne has developed a style that bridges her technical background and love of bold color, specializing in transparency color play and bold, geometric designs. Yvonne’s quilts have been featured in numerous national and international magazines, quilt shows, and Modern Quilts: Designs of the New Century. She lives on the big island of Hawaii with her husband.
