Enslaved people of African descent used secret messages encoded into songs and sewn into quilts to safely traverse the Underground Railroad Network. Learn about the history of the designs used in these quilt squares by freedom seekers. We will make squares like Crossroads, Shoofly, and North Star by utilizing paper cutting and collage techniques.
