Quilt Bomb 2

what you see here is a Freedom Quilt. Quilts like this were created to give signals to slaves who were seeking freedom along the underground railroad 150 odd years ago in the United States. Each block represents a message and safe houses would display quilts to identify themselves to those needing shelter.
As you can see, this “quilt” is made of paper. The third graders at my sons’ school created these blocks while learning about this period in history. It is now hanging in the hallway at the school.

isn’t it fun to see quilts in everyday life? and know that the quilting tradition as such deep roots and so many different meanings to different cultures…and varying styles associated with particular time periods. I love that kids are learning about the tradition and importance of quilts.
