WCTU still exists today; in fact it is the oldest voluntary, non-sectarian women's organization in continuous existence in the world.
According to Wilene Smith, on Quilt History Tidbits, this connection has yet to be proven. Check it out for more interesting reading and examples of the many arrangements and names for this block.
She also notes that there are more "T" quilts than any other letter. Do they have a connection toTemperance?
I'll reiterate what Wilene asks; if you have evidence that would substantiate the connection between either the Drunkard's Path or the "T" block quilts to the WCTU please come forward.
Now this one leaves no doubt!

By the way, I am hoping someone will come forward with about 650 blue and white quilts for an exhibit. I suggest the midwest....Minneapolis, for instance!
