Wrap yourself in a quilt that tells the story of the Knights of the Road. Explore the fascinating world of the depression-era hobo through the culture's hidden language of signs and symbols, all translated into original quilt blocks and projects. Hobo Quilts includes: * More than 55 symbols used by hobos to communicate with each other converted into unique, never-before-seen quilt blocks. * Step-by-step instructions for over 20 gorgeous quilt projects using the Hobo Blocks. Project themes include Mulligan Stew, Ridin' the Rails and Hobo Jungle. * Historical stories and photos throughout the book that will give you a glimpse into hobo culture. Let Hobo Quilts take you on a journey to the times when railways were the lifeblood of America, transporting goods from city to city and carrying hobos in search of a better life.
