The New 14″ Templates are Here!

December 8, 2022

I’d like to tell you that the new 14″ templates are here and how you can combine it with the sets available to buy in my shop (or maybe they already live in your sewing room!)

Whether you are signed up to do a class or not this spring, you might have seen me mention some new 14″ templates on social media.

The new kid on the block is the Complete 14″ Drunkard’s Path set (more info below).  It is the set I’ll be using for the This Way and That Workshop on January 29th (see shipping info for this class at the end of this email) and the Plaid Roundel Workshop starting at the end of March.  You might’ve also heard a whisper about a 2023 BOM with me and @lucyengels…?  I can’t tell you the details yet, but these templates are also used for the BOM.  Don’t worry!  More BOM info will follow shortly.

So…  What is the Complete 14″ Drunkard’s Path set?

The Complete 14" Drunkard's Path set features the tempates to make a 14" block with thin and wide arches.

It is the previous 14″ set, (now named the Basic 14″ DP, poor thing) but with the extra curves.  I wanted (needed!) to be able to make a 14″ block with more arches, thin and wide.  I also wanted the option to tweak my 10 1/2″ block so it has wider arches.  This set, in combination with existing sets as mentioned below, will take care of ALL our needs. 😉

  • Combine the Complete 14″ DP with the Multiple DP set, and you’ll get a 14″ block with eight curves (1 3/4″ apart):The block made as a result of using all of the complete 14" drunkards path set.
  • Combine the complete 14″ Drunkards Path Set and you get a 14″ block with four curves (3 1/2″ apart) like this:

But what if I’ve got the ‘old’ 14″ set already?

I’ve made two supplementary sets, one with two 1 3/4″ curves and one with two 3 1/2″ curves.  (Images are clickable to the templates in my shop!)

The first one is the Supplementary Thin Middles, and it bridges the gap between the Complete DP set and your 14″ set (see picture above).

The second one is the Supplementary Middles, and it bridges the gap between the Complete DP set and your 14″ set (see picture above) AND/OR used in combination with the complete and Multiple DP, creates a 10 1/2″ block with three arches.  Like this:
