Memphis - second post
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.
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.
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.
