There is a story that tells of quilts being used to message escaping slaves on the Underground Railroad. Though there is little evidence, beyond word-of-mouth, to support these claims, I believe stories exist for a reason. You'll find evidence of folk art like this throughout my work.
Represeted are four of my favorite patterns (from right to left in the photo):
Shoofly: used to ID a person who could help guide the way.
North star: used in conjunction with the Big Dipper, the North Star served as a compass.
Flying Geese: migrating geese could be used to follow north as well as to find water.
Log cabin: a symbol of safety or a message to take shelter.
