Karen sent this Underground Railroad quilt. ( I quilted one recently from the same group of friends) She liked that quilting and said I could quilt it the same way……but she had added an extra border and wanted the feet left alone….I completely agree. I love the symbolic feet. I was trying to think of the correct word to use for the feet….how best to describe them and the only thing I could think of was …Soulful. I am not sure that fits but the feet just touched my soul. It’s beautiful.
If you have not seen this quilt before each block tells a story of the underground railroad…and the last block in the quilt tells the meaning of the story. I have quilted a few of these quilts since I have been a longarmer…and I love each one.
Many blessings to all of you on this beautiful fall day!
