Sit and Stitch

The Underground Railroad

Over a two year period, Sit & Stitch members met and created an Underground Railroad-themed quilt.  Members researched the names and designs of these quilt patterns and learned together the history of this famous slave movement.  Each Monday they met and hand stitched the 16 blocks.

The Underground Railroad was a clandestine system that helped escaped American slaves  find freedom by transporting or escorting them from the South into Canada or to Free states.  It is said that quilts handmade by abolitionists of that time, who hung them on cabin doors and fences, held hidden, coded messages that guided escapees on their way to stations or safe houses where they would be fed and clothed.   Although it’s hard to see all of the designs in this photo, they represent quite a story. The monkey wrench turns the wagon wheel toward Canada.  With help from Jesus the Carpenter, follow the bear’s trail through the woods.  Fill your baskets with enough food supplies to get you to the crossroads and dig a log cabin in the ground.  Shoofly told us to dress in cotton and satin bow ties.  Follow the flying geese and birds in the air and stay on the drunkard’s path.  Take the sailboat across the Great Lakes to the North Star above Canada.

We sponsored a trivia quiz and drawing last November as a way to raise money for the Benevolent Care Fund and to find a home for our quilt, which was won by a resident.  We’re proud of our achievement in not only providing funds for the BCF, but also documenting an important part of American history.
