Drunkard's Path, Robbing Peter to Pay Paul, and now Broken Stove Eye. Any other aliases out there, I wonder?

Mama oh mama
Can't you see
What your old broken stove
Has done to me.

If the Broken Stove (minus the Eye) pattern doesn't show by April 1, I'm going to draft a pattern in honor of Callie May Rector, my first mother in law. Maybe Robbing Peter can be configured to be the stovepipe wandering through the blocks.

Hi, Loretta

No, I'm no closer to the Broken Stove pattern, although the patterns suggested here are worthy considerations.

Perhaps my mother in law called it by a local name; or perhaps the pattern was intricate enough to dissuade most quiltmakers, so never gained popularity. The stove pipe wanders throughout the quilt top, she said, so that makes Drunkard's Path a good place to start with a variation.

I've had a CurveMaster foot for ages and have never used it. I also owe my #2 son a quilt, so I think it's time I acted on my wish. He was close to his grandma, and I know he (and his wife) would appreciate the effort.

Working on an Attic Windows for #1 son right now, although I could start thinking about a DP variation--you know, push the pencil around and see what happens.

Thanks for asking. I appreciate your curiosity.

Did you try lookng for guilds in Tennessee? I typed in Tennessee quilting and it gave me a whole list of guilds with e-mail address, maybe it would help if you know what part of Tennessee she was from.
