This quilt project will go on. I will need a new name for it. It is a sampler quilt, for now the bogus underground railway quilt sampler. I think the book has some good quilting instructions and I'm not about to throw the baby out with the bath water. I will continue to read about stories of quilt squares and the history of the underground railway and this myth of quilt codes. I think this is an invitation to write my own story into this quilt.
The first block reminds me to question everything. I heard a Judith Lasater interview on the Liberated Body podcast. She reminds us to extend our questioning to our own thoughts and "not to believe everything you think".
