Kay chose the "Wandering Star" pattern but likes the "North Star" because of the colors and because "Its got quite a story." The "North Star" pattern was one of several used by the Underground Railroad. It was used to signal two messages - to prepare to escape, and the follow the "North Star" to freedom in Canada.
