    Thanks, Melissa. I found C listed as "Reflections of Love", but many of them have multiple names. And every time I search by a new name, I find new patterns! Great fun, but this project is growing and growing!! :shock:

    I have asked my local library to try to find me copies of Pepper Cory's book, Barbara Brackman's Encyclopedia of Pieced Patterns, Maggie Malone's 5,500 Quilt Block Designs, and Yvonne Khin's Collector's Dictionary of Quilt Names. They should be able to find some or all of them for me. Once I see those, there are a couple more block directories I want to see if they can get for me to look at.

    I don't know the first 2 but the 3 one looks like what is also called, Around the World. I just bought 2 drunkard path books off e-bay. When I get them I'll look and see if I can find out what they are. But I like them. All the girls in my quilting club are hung up on the variations of the drunkard's path. We are always looking for new ones. Thanks for sharing.

    What a coincidence these are the 2 books I won on e-bay. Paid 4.99 plus shipping. Happy Trails and 65 Drunkard path by Pepper.

    I'm getting more and more enthusiastic over the variations in the DP blocks. I keep finding more and more (it's over 50 now) and can't wait to get my hands on Pepper Cory's book! I have a totally different one for Around the World and found a stunner yesterday that is unknown for the time being (hoping they show up in that order...no such luck...reversed). These are scans of my drawings, so be nice about the quality of the pics.
