I mean this article talks about quilts and the codes they contained. https://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2004/02/0205_040205_slavequilts.html "The historians believe the first quilt the seamstress would display had a wrench pattern. 'It meant gather your tools and get physically and mentally prepared to escape the plantation,' Dobard said. The seamstress would then hang a quilt with a wagon wheel pattern. This pattern told slaves to pack their belongings because they were about to go on a long journey. "Dobard said his favorite pattern was the bear's paw, a quilt he believes directed slaves to head north over the Appalachian Mountains." "The last quilt had a tumbling blocks pattern, which Dobard described as looking like a collection of boxes. 'This quilt was only displayed when certain conditions were right. If, for example, there was an Underground Railroad agent in the area,'Dobard said. 'It was an indication to pack up and go.'"

Shadow:

"Follow the drinking gourd" (a song) sounds like the closest the video gets to codes, much less 'quilts.' It refers to the "secret" of the Underground Railroad.

Shadow:

So unless you needed the codes as said in the video, I would go with the ones listed in the article.

rootbeer003:

A. Create an original Underground Railroad quilt pattern to help slaves escape to freedom B. Create one quilt square/block (like the video showed) C. Describe the pattern meaning and message you want to send to runaway slaves and how you will make sure runaway slaves see your quilt and know your message You can use any medium you like to create your quilt pattern, it could be a drawing, a picture, or digitally created using a word processing program or other software applications. Use the easiest for you.

One of the things they talked about was moss on the banks of rivers (as it would be on the northern side, thus they would know which direction to go in).

I do not know what you are talking about. This is an incredibly straight forward assignment. I answered your questions, and pointed you towards the best thing to draw. Asking me to look for the picture is lazy. You got the assignment, not us. We can help you, but will not do the work for you.
