Quilt Patterns: Messages On The Underground Railroad

Quilt Display
Originally uploaded by decatur library.
For the month of February, the Library is proud to host a special exhibit in our display case in B Building - Quilt Patterns: Messages On The Underground Railroad.

Using the book Hidden In Plain View as a resource, students in Loretta Gilead's English 2131 (American Literature) class created quilt squares based on actual patterns used as guides for runaway slaves. These quilt patterns provided visual instructions to slaves on their journey North.


The exhibit features the squares created by Ms. Gilead's class along with photographs of the project in progress and additional information on the use of quilts in the Underground Railroad.
