Imaginitive use of Drunkard's Path block

One of my p&q pupils has a friend in Ontario, who sent her this table runner. It's actually very simply constructed, using Drunkard's Path blocks in an imaginitive way to produce a very strking design.

The detail on the right shows how it's constructed. Twelve Drunkard's Path blocks are set with six four-patch blocks and triangles at the edges. Clever, eh?

It would make a lovely Christmas hanging or table runner.
