Freedom Quilt Along Box 1

$139

Join us for Sew Creative Lounge’s inaugural Quiltalong project. During this Quiltalong, you will learn how to make three quilt blocks:

  • Shoo-Fly 

  • Monkey Wrench

  • Jacob’s Ladder


These three quilt blocks were used during slavery to help the enslaved to escape. Each block was used to give directions for the Underground Railroad. For instance, Shoo Fly quilt identified someone who could offer assistance to runaway slaves. Monkey Wrench was used as a symbol to gather all the tools required for the feeling slave’s journey, meaning the physical tools, as well as the mental and spiritual ones.  Jacob’s Ladder was used to help show the direction in which needed to be traveled within the Underground Railroad system. Jacob's Ladder blocks, in  the quilting world, have alternating paths with both dark and light blocks.  SO MUCH HISTORY TO TELL IN SO MANY AMAZING WAYS AND THROUGH QUILTING!!

In the Quilt Box, you will receive:

  • African Print Fat Quarter Bundle (10 pack)

  • 5 half yard pieces of cotton blender fabrics

  • 2 yards of African Print fabric (backing)

  • 45 x 60 Batting

In addition, you will have access to three instructional videos on each of the quilt blocks.
