Quilt Notes: WOODLAND PATH debuted in the Chicago Tribune in Nancy Cabot's quilt column on April 21, 1934. column in the Chicago Tribune. Her notes state the following:
In Philadelphia, in the year 1907, this dainty "Woodland Path" was first pieced. It is composed entirely of triangles in white, red, green and yellow. The block is extremely attactive; and the whole spread of the pieced block alternated with some plain blocks, [making it] one of the most striking quilts seen in any collection."
The block in Barbara Brackman's ENCYCLOPEDIA OF PIECED QUILT PATTERNS (#1962) is included in her section with an interesting collection of related designs including JACK IN THE BOX (Wheel of Fortune) and FLYING X. Jinny Beyer's QULTER'S ALBUM OF PATCHWORK PATTERNS aligns the design with other base 5 x 5 patterns, for example, BIRD'S NEST and POINT AND FEATHER.
