Clara, a slave in the big house on Home Plantation, begins to save scraps of colored cloth for a quilt that becomes a map depicting the route of the Underground Railroad. Clara eventually escapes herself by the path that has by now been stitched into her memory, leaving the quilt behind as a guide for others.
