Quilts That Talk!

Yesterday's blog was about secret codes in your knitting,
but if you are a quilter can you design secret codes in your
quilting.  Yes, quilts do talk! and they speak loudly!
Story quilts paint our feelings and thoughts!

And then there is the underground railroad quilts--The code "was a way to say something to a person in the presence of many others without the others knowing," said Dobard, a history professor at Howard University in Washington, D.C. "It was a way of giving direction without saying, 'Go northwest.'"  

Oh, what a way to communicate--a special code to only those in the know!  Our works of art speak a billion words without uttering a spoken word!
