Well I only had about an hour to play around with this today, but lets just say that I learned a lot.
I'm using Marti Michell's Perfect Templates for this. They come with a mostly well explained instructions. The first that confused me for a little bit is that there doesn't seem to be a distinction between unfinished and finished size. Let me clear it up - when you make a 3 1/2 inch drunkard's path block with her templates, that is the unfinished size of the unit.
The second thing was the best way to cut the L-shaped pieces. Its actually very easy. Cut a square to the size you want the unfinished unit to be (I wanted 3 1/2 inches, so I cut a 3/12 inch square) and then use the correct template to cut out the notch.
Also, I learned to CUT VERY ACCURATELY. I have a little experience in curved piecing due to the garments I've made, but this is a little difficult. I pieced two blocks, had puckers in each that I had to resew, and they both finished a little under 3.5 inches. I would rather have them a little too big and trim them down.
Lastly, I'm very happy with the fabric I bought from Connecting Threads. First, it was inexpensive at $6 per yard. Second, it washed very well, hardly unraveled on the edges. It irons easily, and is a good weight. And the color catcher I used didn't pick up any extra dye. I will definitely be ordering more fabric from them in the future.
Update: Here is the first quarter of one of the Stormy Path blocks - can you tell I'm getting excited about how these are turning out?
