Drunkard's Path Variation Full Quilt in Green
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.

- 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!
