Underground Railroad

Joanne pieced this Underground Railroad quilt.  The blocks tell a story of how the slaves were given information on how to travel safely north to freedom.  It is 86 x 92.

The story in included as one of the blocks:

Some of the blocks include:

Drunkard's Path:


Wagon Wheel:

Birds in the Air:

and a Basket:

Each block was custom quilted, so there are a lot of different motifs throughout the quilt.  I added cross-hatching in the sashings and cornerstones:

There are curls and feathers in the 4 borders:
