    Drunkard's Path Angel ornament

    A few years ago, I saw a cute tree ornament made with the Drunkard's Path block(s) to make an angel. Does anyone have a picture/instructions for this?

    I did not see the ornament but here is a Drunkard's Path block that I made that resembles a bird or an angel. If you sketch it out, it will make sense. All the path's are the same direction and the circle is appliqued on for the head. Three pieces have a dark pie and light crust, the top right is opposite with a light pie and a dark crust.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    I have never heard the use of 'pie' and 'crust' to describe the parts of this block. Just perfect!

    Thanks y'all, I have no idea where I saw this pattern. I have been wanting to make it again in Christmas fabrics with the blocks on point to resemble angels. One of these days.....
