    I just began my first Underground Railroad quilt.... inspired 100% by you all here - I followed along in the URR threads and requested the book from my library. I bought all the fabrics today to make my mother-in-law a wall hanging for a Christmas gift. :D

    She lives in Charlestion, SC and she works downtown a short walk away from the outdoor market and the old slave mart!!

    So I'm going to make the blocks in the order they are in the book.... so here's block #1!! (all in 6 1/2" unfinished size)

    Jacob's Ladder

    I used to go to that market! Lots of "finds" there, spices with innovative names, baskets handmade from the sweetgrasses growing in the marsh. Is the old Gullah woman who quilts still there? I haven't thought of her in years!

    And the fudge from the cafetorium :D

    Hey Moonpi!!! I don't know if she's still there or not... It's been 3 years since I lived there myself (well actually in Goose Creek, but I worked downtown too, at the Medical University of South Carolina). We currently live 3 1/2 hours away up in NC and we're TRYING to plan a weekend to go visit, but we have a new dog that we can't take with us, and we hate to put in a kennel... and we're so new here that I hate to ask someone I barely know to come inside our home to feed him and let him out.

    But when I do get to go back, I'll look for her and let you know!!

    Yay!! They *are* fun to do! It's amazing how long these little 6" blocks take to make. LOL This 2nd one, the monkey wrench, took over an hour!

    And here are the two together. I hope as the blocks continue they will actually LOOK like they belong together. Because these two don't look "related" in the least! hehehe
