  • Our quilt club chose this book as a block-of-the-month project. Our club consists of beginners having never made a quilt to more experienced quilters who have been quilting for decades. Everyone found this project enjoyable. There were quite a few blocks that we chose to do the easy way instead of using Eleanor's method. For that reason I gave this book 4 stars instead of 5 since some of Eleanor's methods were so complicated and time-consuming. All in all this was a very fun project since the blocks are classic and simple. I would definitely suggest making the blocks the easy way since they are pretty straight-forward simple blocks. I also purchased the curved pressure foot to do the drunkard's path block instead of doing the applique method in the book. And that's what quilting is all about... finding a pattern and personalizing. I included an attic window sashing since I imagined the persons involved peering through windows looking for clues (like a candle in the window).

  • didn't realize it was a book. But since it shows how to make many different blocks that make one quilt it is great. Am looking forward to making the quilt but also like that I learn to make many different blocks so could make many different quilts. A friend recommended it and her quilt was very pretty.

  • As always, Eleanor Burns is the best when it comes to writing pattern directions!
    You just can't beat her as far as I'm concerned. I have many of her books, and this one
    too, is wonderful. My only disappointment was that there was not more explanation about
    the patterns and there history with the underground railroad. They were brief to say the least.
    Although, I am sure most quilters didn't buy this book for a history lesson, I love the history
    behind quilt blocks. I have 12 new block patterns with directions from Eleanor which will make a
    nice sampler quilt! I do love the book and would recommend it.

  • Very interesting book, well written for quilters, gives interpretations for quilt blocks as coded messages.

  • Not only am I excited about creating this quilt, I found I couldn't stop turning the pages as I read about our country's history

    I am excited about creating this lovely quilt. As an added bonus, I was drawn into the narrative accounts of slaves seeking freedom, and found I wanted to read more and more....well done! Though retired now, I taught this period in our country's history to third-graders, and wish I would have had access to this book.

  • I ordered this book at the beginning of 2011....the 150 Anniversary of the Civil War. The two quilt guilds of which I belong, wanted to make this Sampler. All 65 members ordered the book and I cut all the blocks (that's 65 x 16 blocks...you do the math). Even though all the blocks were the same, they each made their own sashings, borders & quilting designs. Needless to say, there were 65 different quilts. All were awesome and everyone was delighted with the expert assembly directions by Eleanor Burns. Great book, great directions, great quilts.

  • Love Eleanor Burns, and this book did not disappoint. I enjoyed the background information concerning the Underground Railroad, and I am looking forward to completing the quilt blocks offered.

  • Clear well-written instructions, as all Eleanor Burns books are.. Excellent suggestions for fabric choice. I plan to start on it in the new year.
