rails.These designs were carved in peoples fences or written on a barn
to convey to the next Hobo what to look out for.
I have images of Hobo's sitting in the back of a freight car sewing blocks on and chatting about the stops along the way. I saw these quilt blocks and fell in love with the simple squares. So I ran over to Country Loft and signed up for the once a month class. My hubby collects Trains and so what better quilt then a hobo quilt. There is something about working on individual blocks that I find fun and relaxing. I know I have too many projects but one more won’t hurt. I ordered the book on line and I am so looking forward to the Wednesday class.
