In 1860, 11-year-old Lucy and her brother Albert despair when their parents are sold off the plantation. One day Albert brings home a sack of ordinary-looking old quilts. But in fact their patterns are secret messages to slaves to help them plan their escape via the Underground Railroad. When Albert's activities are exposed, he flees -- with a gift from Lucy, a quilt square with the North Star stitched on it.
