Apparently, Jennifer Chivarini's new book is "The Runaway Quilt".
Yup, quilts with maps for escaping slaves.

(She's the author of The Quilter's Apprentice" and other books that

Amazon's review:
"Chiaverini manages to impart a healthy dollop of history in a folksy
style, while raising moral questions in a suspenseful narrative."

This is not an editorial, just pointing it out.

Owner is assuming it is about 100 years old. The brown diamonds are pieced into the white bands while the blue and brown shapes on the circle are appliqued.  click on the thumbnail.
