I fell in love with this quilt top when I found it in 1994 in an antique collective in Rockford, Illinois. According to Barbara Brackman, this block is a Rob Peter to Pay Paul variation of the familiar Drunkard’s Path block.
All the very bright colors make this a very happy quilt, and it is one that we use.
I replaced five heavily stained blocks with ones made from vintage fabric in my stash. Two of the blocks I replaced are pictured here, second and third down.
This 1994 quilt also represents the beginning of my long and still-continuing process of learning machine quilting. I see here that all I was able to do at the time was outline each of these blocks in the ditch. Gotta start somewhere.
