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.
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 print these out in black and white and mail them to you USPS.
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.
