This beautiful quilt features a star and compass in the center surrounded by curves known as the Drunkard’s Path. The border is intricately designed with stars and diamond shapes. The purple, pink, gray, and white materials make for a striking piece. The backing is a pale gray, marbled print.
Queen (98″ W x 107″ L)
A queen mattress is 60″ wide and 80″ long, therefore this quilt would have a 19″ drop on each side.
All quilts are long enough to allow for a significant drop at the foot of the bed as well as a nice pillow tuck so there is no need for shams.
About This Pattern:
The story of the Stars Over the Georgetown Path quilt pattern is quite interesting. Folklore suggests that this beautiful quilt pattern describes the journey of those seeking to escape slavery by traveling to and reaching the northern states and beyond into Canada. In the middle of the quilt burns a traditional 8-pointed Amish star: a star of faith, conviction and courage. In order to avoid detection and recapture, escapees had to travel at night. They relied upon the stars to point the way north, as represented by the stars that ring the quilt. After the inner Amish star is the pattern Drunkard’s Path which represents the evasive maneuvers taken to avoid detection. Like the rivers and streams followed by escapees, the Drunkards Path is meandering and winding. (AmishSpirit.com)
