BOM Drunkard Path Variations - January Block

I signed up for a BOM called Drunkard Path Variations that is being run by Kerstin http://kesquilts.blogspot.com/ .  I only got my templates for these block this past week and with work being rather busy I had to leave this to the last weekend in January.  I'm very please with how it turned out for a first timer at curved piecing.  I must say it has been a learning experience. I had to get a smaller sized rotary cutter and that made things a lot easier in the cutting department. Sewing the curves was interesting but lots of pins made it easier. The directions said to use 5 pins well I think I was using like 9 pins :-). Here is my finished block.

Below are the fabrics that I'm planning on using for this project. The Kaufman fusion fabric will be in each of the block (top). The fabric that is on the far left is the backing.  The 6 batiks that are resting one on top of another will appear in 2 of the 12 blocks each.  The one on the bottom is the one I used in today's block.  The darker batik that is along the bottom will likely be a sashing but that may change once all the blocks are completed.

Great job! I like the way the fusions print runs into the other over the course of the Drukard's Path.

Those colors look perfect all together!
