    Help identify this pattern?

    Help. A friend's grandmother made this quilt and called it "Road to Jericho." I can't find a pattern that looks like this one. The roadway is made by turning the squares and it looks like each road crosses both corners of the block. All blocks are identical. Anyone have a clue for this simple pattern?

    The one I made almost like this was called crazy drunkards path. Mine had crazy quilt like centers on each block then a narrow arc then a quarter circle in 2 opposite corners.

    Snakes trail. There are lots of variations and I think I remember seeing a website/blog somewhere where multiple variations were shown.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    What an interesting quilt - just when you think you have seen them all, a new (old) one pops up. Thanks for the site.

    Just make several blocks-you stated they are the same, only 1 block-then twist and turn them to get the path.

    My guess is some quilter made up the pattern as she/he went along.

    And upon further inspection, I finally SEE what you have all been saying. Every block is the same- just set at different turns to make the lines snake thru the quilt.

    The link won't work for me either. I took out everything and went to Early women masters site and found lots of quilt listings but no snakes trail. I even searched but can't find it. I love the quilt.
