I'm updating this post with a copy of the photo Missy sent me of the entire quilt. This is not a common setting, but it's really wonderful for the visual movement and for the quilter.
Over the decades I've pieced a lot of blocks from drunkard's path variations--a lot of variations--but it's not a pattern that's on my life list for an entire quilt.
When I lived in East Tennessee, there was a quilter named Lora Creasman, who pieced nothing but drunkard's path variations, always by hand. In fact, as recently as the fall of 2011 her work was featured in a show in her hometown. I just did a search which led to a couple of Facebook sites that featured photos of her and her work. I couldn't find an obituary, so I hope she's still happily piecing drunkard's path variations.
I've made several small wall quilts featuring a southern turtle block made from drunkard's path pieces, and back when I taught for the chain of fabric stores, everyone who took the comprehensive quiltmaking course learned to piece those drunkard's path curves.
These blocks were pieced a few years ago by Pat Nordstrom during her mother's long illness. She passed the blocks on to Missy Shay, who set them together. Sadly, I don't have a photo of the entire quilt. I tried to get photos for several days, but inclement weather got in the way. I let Missy know I'd really like a photo of the entire quilt, so if she sends me one, I'll update this post.
