Drunkard’s Path quilt pattern with stencil templates. From Best Loved Quilt Patterns Series by Oxmoor House Inc. 1992.
From the introduction:
During the last half of the 19th century and the early part of the 20th century, many women became active in the Temperance Movement, the drive to abolish alcohol consumption. And even when they could not express themselves with their votes, their teetotaling sentiments frequently showed up in their quilt pattern. Temperance Tree, Double T, and Drunkard’s Path were patterns born of this sober issue.
About the series:
This is one of probably a hundred quilt patterns that I will be listing. These patterns were part of a monthly subscription series. Each month, the recipient would receive a pack of 3 different patterns. It took a several years to obtain the complete set.
The pattern and templates offered in this listing were designated in the “circles and curves” category. You will receive the brochure which tells the sizes, fabric requirements, the amount of pieces to cut, and instructions for piecing your quilt. You will also receive the actual templates that is the exact size needed to cut all the pieces of material. The template is made of a hard, yet flexible plastic.
According to the instructions, this pattern will make a twin quilt measuring 64 x 78 inches, a full/queen measuring 78 x 92 inches, or a king size measuring 92 x 106 inches. I would imagine that more or less blocks could be used if you want to change those sizes.
This pattern has never been used. If you receive templates that appears to have been cut out, that's because when first mailed out, templates for 2 or more quilts may have been imprinted on one 8 by 12 inch template sheet. To provide you with just the templates that you'll need for making this quilt, I had to separate them from unrelated templates.

COMBINED SHIPPING INFORMATION
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased as long as all items can fit safely into a single box. However, my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
Due to claims that merchandise is not being received at various international countries (although Customs tracking verifies the delivery), I will no longer be able to process international orders unless payment is made with U.S. currency, including conversion fees. Orders will be processed after funds have cleared a U.S. bank. Paypal will not be accepted on International orders. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
