"An exciting story about a girl and her father who escape slavery. . . . Works well as a story and also as a lesson in African-American history." -- SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL
Now that Hannah's papa has decided to make the run for freedom, her patchwork quilt is not just a precious memento of Mama -- it's a series of hidden clues that will guide them along the Underground Railroad to Canada. A fictionalized account of a fascinating oral history, THE PATCHWORK PATH tells the story of a two of the thousands who escaped a life of slavery and made the dangerous journey to freedom -- a story of courage, determination, and hope.

Patchwork Blocks Colouring Book
Patchwork and applique blocks for colouring. Printed on the front pages only so no bleed-through if using markers, ranging from easy to more intricate.
Patchwork is a craft for people of all ages. There is such a variety of shapes and designs to choose from that everyone should find something to suit their tastes and capabilities. Like other titles in the series, this book has been prepared with the beginner in mind, taking them through the methods and techniques in easy stages. However, it also features plenty of templates and patterns to inspire more experienced stitchers to try their hands, perhaps at a dazzling Mennonite star or delicate Hawaiian appliquâ€š.
You don’t have to make an entire quilt all at once. Piece together just one intricate block of patchwork and if you go no further, you have a unique cushion cover or a decorative panel for the side of a tote bag. Using scraps, young children can start on a simple cover for a doll’s bed or cheerful padded pan holders; the basic four- or nine-piece block makes an easy introduction for them.
