One Block Wonder

I made this small quilt in a class. I have had the book containing this pattern for about 2 years and purchased the fabric about 1 year ago. Doing it in a class setting gave me the confidence to finally try this technique.

Underground Railroad


This quilt pattern is UNDERGROUND RAILROAD. I made this quilt in a class setting over several months. Each block symbolizes a step taken by slaves fleeing to the north and freedom.
