    So far I have "collected" 170 variations of the Drunkard's Path...found, mutated, or adapted and limiting myself to three colors max (I have 86 in black and white alone). It's a simple little two-piece square with almost unlimited potential!

    Here are some more: http://www.earlywomenmasters.net/qui...ard/index.html

    Some history of the block (from Pepper Cory's Easy Drunkard's Path Templates) :
    "Drunkard's Path, the easiest quilt block pattern for learning to sew curved seams, is one of few quilt block patterns with a recorded history. The block was first seen in ancient Roman mosaics. By the 18th century the design emerged in England with the name Rob Peter to Pay Paul. When the pattern traveled to America in colonial times, new names appeared - Wanderer in the Wilderness, Rocky Road, and finally Drunkard's Path.

    Amish quilters called this design Solomon's Puzzle, Old Maid's Dilemma, or Endless Trail. In the 1930's the Drunkard's Path was popularized as the Moorish Design and other modern versions of the classic block."
