Drunkard's Path Queen Quilt in Traditional Blue and White
THIS QUILT HAS ALREADY BEEN SOLD, BUT YOU MAY CONTACT US ABOUT A CUSTOM ORDER. WE'RE ALSO WORKING WITH OUR QUILTER TO HAVE ANOTHER DRUNKARD'S QUILT MADE IN ANOTHER PALETTE.
First seen in the 1880's under other names, this design was co-opted by The Women's Christian Temperance Union (WCTU) presumably because it looks like a staggered path. The WCTU's colors were blue and white, and those are the ones traditionally associated with the design. It was the first design to be used to raffle for fundraising. This is such a beautiful quilt; it is very well made, too. We estimate there are over 84,000 individual hand stitches in this quilt. It's a one-of-a-kind item.

- Border features one strip of "S" quilting; then the use of straight quilted lines to binding is very harmonious with the complexity of the drunkard's path above!
