Quilt from the Underground Railroad

We went to a wonderful celebration today of our friend, Father Ken Hamilton, who has been a priest for 40 years!  He showed us wonderful quilts sewn by women in his family, lots of different styles.  This one impressed me most - sewn by his great grandmother, he said that it was used by the Underground Railroad to signal that this particular house was a safe house for escaping slaves.  Fascinating and beautiful (and partially restored)!
