It is a sampler quilt, with each block having been used as code in the underground railroad. For this first block we started simple with the 'crossroads' pattern.
My mom loves civil war era reproduction fabric, and she's hoping to clear out some of her stash with this project!
I've went a little more modern, pulling fabric from my stash in blacks and greys, pinks and reds, and mustard yellows.
If you are interested in quilting along, or just want the book for yourself, it is:
Underground Railroad Sampler by Eleanor Burns and Sue Bouchard
Hopefully, we'll both have a finished quilt by next holiday!
