The Drunkards Path (Quilt)
From the Underground Railroad symbols; when this pattern is displayed, know to zigzag your path. It was also thought to confuse evil spirits who only navigated straight paths.
This signed, numbered, LIMITED EDITION Giclee tells the story about a quilt code of the Underground Railroad. A pattern called The Drunkard's Path, when this quilt came out to air, it was a message to all that follow a zig-zag path, making it difficult for your pursuers to find you. The message was apparent to all who planned to escape unbeknown to the plantation owners, as the message was "Hidden In Plain Sight"
