The photos of enslaved West Africans show these quilted coded patterns from the quilts "ichie" marks cut into their skin
If you read the book, Hidden In Plain View, written by Jackie Tobin should tune in to The Gist of Freedom with Roy Paul (@RoyPaulReports) and his guest, author Mrs.Teresa Kemp! Teresa book The Keeper of the Fire book covers not just Igbo Tribe's slavery but slavery in Africa by Arabs and Africans.
Many people questions the encoded quilts. They argue enslaved Africans were not intelligent enough to out smart the Slavers. What many fail to understand, that most Africans were multi-langual. They wrote and read in more than on language. Many asked who could understand the coded quilt pattern language. Tonight's guest, Mrs. Kemp has posters from Nigeria that date the symbols and patterns to 1400 AD this is clearly before the Civil War in America 1861-1865. We have the linage of 3 Eze's of Igbo land to 1042, 1087, 1092 BC.

This week on Relationships 2.0 my guest is Ruth Danner author of Making a World of Difference One Quilt at a Time: Inspiring Stories about Quilters and How They Have Touched Lives
Quilts exemplify precious things: comfort through the warmth they provide; community, since they are often created by groups; and love, given the time and effort they require. With this in mind, legions of kindhearted quilters all over the world choose to donate their labors of love to people in need. Ruth McHaney Danner has gathered fifty-four heartwarming stories of quilters who make their compassion tangible one stitch, square, and quilt at a time. Each story introduces a quilter or group of quilters, ranging from a blind woman in Texas to preschoolers in Australia. Their gifts have the power to make recipients feel cherished and supported, even though they may never meet face-to-face. These wonderfully inspiring stories show that every quilter who has ever wondered, “But what can I do?” can do something that will help someone.
About the author:
Ruth McHaney Danner, the author of What I Learned from God While Quilting, has written extensively for various publications. She has made dozens of quilts for charitable organizations and for individuals in need, and many of her projects have won awards. Her sewing room in Spokane, Washington, overflows with stacks of fabric, bags of scraps, and an endless supply of UFOs (unfinished objects).

The dead are coming back. Ten naked people walk from a cemetery into artist Sean Casey's backyard: ten Spore People who used to be dead. One, Mindy, stays with Sean while trying to reclaim her life, but her ex would rather she return to her grave. Sean struggles to protect Mindy and other Spores while battling his recurring—and worsening—nightmares. Meanwhile, the media feeds a panicked frenzy that leads both the hopeful and hateful to Sean's front door. As the Spore fungus spreads, so does the fear. When mutilated children match Sean's nightmares, he realizes his own worst terror may be closer than he thinks.

Our guest on Metalsmith Benchtalk on Thursday, August 27th at 3:00 pm PST is metalsmith and jewelry designer Marilyn Brogan, owner of Meader Works, in San Diego, CA.
Please join us for this live interview and participate by logging onto the chatroom at Blogtalkradio.com or by sending a message to Whaley Studios via Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.
My name is Marilyn Brogan and I’m the designer, maker and curator of Meander Works, a one-woman studio based in San Diego, California. Meander Works offers delicate, minimalist jewelry made from recycled gold and silver – and soon, a line of engagement rings and wedding bands featuring recycled and traceable diamonds.
I deeply value and admire good craftsmanship and believe a design is only as good as its execution. Jewelry is an expression of both the maker and the wearer – the quality of the construction is essential to that collaboration. If a ring looks beautiful but it is poorly made, then it may not feel right, fit right, or last. I’m inspired by antique jewelry and love the function of heirlooms. Like the handmade Appalachian quilts passed down to me from my great-grandmother, fine jewelry tells a story across generations. When I finish a piece of jewelry, I see a story that’s just beginning.
Join host Sarah S. Uthoff and quilt historian Linda Halpin as they talk quilts. We'll explore trends in quilts during Laura Ingalls Wilder's lifetime and how quilts changed over time. We'll talk about how quilts were sewn and how they were used. Halpin is the author of "Quilting With Laura."
When one hears of quilting, you think of "quilting bees", Log Cabin quilts, and the celebration of major life events. And while these traditions still and should exist, the craft has been revitalized with new ideas, voices, and techniques that has changed the face of quilting. One such voice is quilter, Tresa McConachie, who got the quilting bug after many years as a sewer.
Join us today as we learn about Tresa and her quilting adventures. To learn more about creative workshops, tutorials, e-books and patterns, visit iCreateFlix.com.
