Thank you so much - I am really enjoying this month's lesson - it is daunting doing all that pinning but if you do it slowly it appears to work out well. I am so glad that I managed to get the templates and also that you use the starch to help them sit.

gorgeous! this layout actually has a name. It is Old Maid's Puzzle. I saw it Eleanor Burns Quilt in a Day show. In the 30's 2 colors were used and crossed in the middle. in a whole quilt it is awesome! I don't think we get the full effect making just one block. Eleanor said back in the day, children never slept under a drunkard's path quilt because they would grow up to be drunkard! lol

Thank you MsQuilty - that is fascinating to know - I would like to do a whole quilt with this layout but would need time - lol about the children.

Eleanor Burns had this in a sampler quilt too. She made 4 12 in. blocks for 1 large 24 inch block in the sampler. it was soo pretty. It is in the Egg Money Quilts- 1930's reproductions. I think you can watch it at www.quiltinaday.com
