Come here, child. ” When Rachel sat down, Grandma Hutcherson reached in her pocket and handed Rachel an old locket. ” the old woman asked. “I’ve seen you wear it lots of times,” Rachel said. “I remember seeing it when I was little. You’d open it and show me pictures inside. I thought it was so neat the way it opened. ” Grandma opened the locket. “This is Sarah,” she said, pointing to the old 29 sepia-colored photograph. “And that’s her husband,” Grandma added. ” Rachel drew her breath in sharply.
The people in the photograph had meant nothing until now. But today—maybe for the first time in her life—Rachel felt a close link with her many-times-great-grandparents. It was as if she could look back across the ages and see them smiling at her. “Now I’ll tell you the rest of the story,” Grandma said softly. She explained that Sarah sewed quilts for her owner and quilts for her own people. The quilts for her people had messages encoded in the designs. The “f lying geese” design represented the wings of freedom.
Red meant the hearth,” 30 Grandma said. “Yellow was a lighted window. But the coded quilts had a black square in the center of each block of cloth. ” Rachel gasped.

It took her months to reach Canada— months of sheer terror and exhaustion, every hour of every day fearing injury or capture or death. “She set foot on Canadian soil on her twentieth birthday,” Grandma said. Rachel felt her heart pounding.
