Underground Railroad Quilt Codes

Written by Katherine Schneider Fine Arts Faculty

Fifth graders recently spent four days creating a paper quilt inspired by Underground Railroad quilt codes. Marquetta Johnson, a local Atlanta textile artist and quilter with more than 30 years experience as a teaching artist, spent four days in Mrs. Schneider's art classroom leading the project. Students created 12"x12" paper square blocks using various papers, shapes, symbols, textures and codes to create a contemporary paper quilt.
