I've just learned that my tax dollars DO actually pay for something cool...this National Film Board sponsored film! Although the credits say it was made by Gayle Thomas in 1996, I've only just discovered it via a guild friend (thanks Leslie!) and I'm so happy to share it with you. The music seems sort of Japanese-y at the beginning, but then it segues right into some classic Maritime kitchen party tunes. Very Canadian.
DISCLAIMER:I take no responsibility for your bad trip if you are under the influence of (a)prescription painkillers (b) B.C. bud, or (c) several glasses of wine, while watching this. You'll see what I mean.
Drunkards Path has never been one of my favourite quilt blocks, but I've gotta say that this pattern shown in the title image for the film is totally cool! I can imagine it in sweet Japanese prints, or repros (again, not usually my scene, but apparently this movie has quilt-brain-expanding magical powers that open your mind to all sorts of never-before-imagined quilt possibilities). Oh! or Happy Mochi Yum Yum. Yeah, that would be the bomb in this pattern.
