First seen in the 1880's as Double Wrench, Wanderer's Path in the Wilderness, Robbing Peter to Pay Paul, or Solomon's Puzzle, this design was co-opted by The Women's Christian Temperance Union (WCTU) very close to that time, and the moniker stuck. It obviously looks like a staggered path, so that makes sense! It was the first design to be used to raffle for fundraising. This is just a terrific quilt; it is very well made and the dark green floral paisley print is such a comely contrast to the white. We estimate there are over 74,000 individual hand stitches in this quilt.  It is a one-of-a-kind item.

Size:

  • Full (Double) Size
  • 89" wide by 104" long.

Piecing: Standard. Interesting variation on regular Drunkard's Path design.

Quilting: Superior quality with an average of 8 stitches per inch.

Other photographs include:

  • Close up of Drunkard's Path quilt and fabrics used
  • Superior quilting here shows approximately 8 stitches per inch
  • 2nd quilting photo again shows approximately 8 stitches per inch
  • Border features one strip of green print in an oval and diamond quilting; then the use of straight quilted lines to binding is very harmonious with the complexity of the drunkard's path above!
  • Back is a solid off-white
