Harriet Tubman week

My mother is a quilter.(No, she's actually an artist who quilts.) Years ago she made me a queen size quilt called: The Story of the Underground Railroad. I asked her to make me a "mini" quilt of it because I couldn't easily show the large one in class. Here is a picture of my mini. It hangs on the back of my chair in reading circle. During Harriet Tubman week I introduce it to the kids. They love the panel that explains the significance of each quilt square. It acts like a puzzle. I posted both pictures but unfortunately the story panel is upside down :( I think you can still get the idea. Christine
