Today was the kickoff for the Underground Railroad quilt class through the Mt. Airy Learning Tree in Philadelphia. This is a 12 block sampler class. In addition to learning quilting, we will also be learning the the history of squares as they relate to the Underground Railroad.
As I went to the quilt show this past week, I found a great bargain on $1 fat quarter batiks. Have you heard of such a thing? Thus, I had to pick up a few for the underground railroad! It just happened to be a few (plus many!) fat quarters. Each rubber band in the stack below represents each fat quarter. I am now ready for the Underground Railroad!
