THREADS OF MEMORY. Civil War Quilt Pattern Block of the Month Sampler. 12 original pieced star designs. (12") Underground Railroad theme. Each named for an important place where the UGRR assisted slaves on the road to freedom.
PDF pattern package contains 15 pages, patterns for the 12" blocks with rotary cutting & templates as needed, plus an intro, yardage sheet and setting suggestions.
I’d rate the blocks as a requiring a little more skill than a beginner would have. The piecing could be a challenge but many readers reported stretching their limits and learning new techniques such as curved piecing and paper piecing.
Series appeared in 2014 as a BOM sampler on my CivilWarQuilts blog. I'll keep the Underground Railroad history stories up on my blog. Each pattern sheet gives you a link to that extended history of people and places. The blog also shows you many quilts completed by readers who sewed along in 2014.

You can now buy the patterns as a PDF.
Some quilters prefer paper patterns, so I am offering the series in two formats with different pricing:
1) Buy the complete pattern package in PDF form in this listing, which you can print yourself in color or black and white. $15
2) I will print these out in black & white and mail them to you. You pay an additional fee for the printing and the postage in a one-time package. $22.50
See this listing to buy the paper patterns.
