Memphis - second post

Here is my loot from my second favorite store that we visited, Klassy Katz.  She didn't have as much fabric but I did like this panel of the world.

I liked it so much I bought two panels.

And two companions fabrics - one with city scenes and the other with bits of language.  Then for good measure I got a dot fabric that matches with it all.
Oh and a bit of zebra fabric.  I like bits of animal fabric.  No, I don't know what I will do with it.
I think I liked it because of the world languages and just a view of ourselves as citizens of this world.

When we were in Memphis we visited the National Civil Rights Museum which incorporates the motel where Dr. Martin Luther King was assassinated.

It was a very sobering experience and certainly evil and hatred triumphed that day.  All of us have to fight against that and teach our children that they are indeed citizens of a wide and diverse world.  I am very glad that a museum like this exists and I support its mission.
To that end, I wanted to buy things in the gift shop and Father's day is coming up.  My Dad is hard to buy for so I do actually buy him gifts at museum gift shops.  I support something I really like and get him a unique gift.

I got him a hat, a fan, a t-shirt, a bumper sticker and a tote bag to put it all in. 

On the back of the shirt it has the quote which I took away from this visit and will remember in my quilting life and my whole life.

"You can kill the dreamer but you cannot kill the dream." 

Amen to that.
