Does quilting comes from Africa ? Anyway, it's a fact that , in the USA, quilting has strong roots in african-american communities .
African-american quilts are very interesting because they tell a story , recalling memories of african-americans. I found some striking compositions in which each quilt is a visual narrative in cloth in here . Take a look.

Interesting indeed. I do love the handiwork of african textile crafters.

I am with you on patchworks that comes with a story, just love looking at quilt squares that depict different scenes.
