Since I am making new memories on my new job as DeKalb County Attorney, I thought it appropriate to allow my personal memory quilt visit for a while. From Africa to Atlanta by Way of Arkansas now hangs in my office in the DeKalb County Law Department awaiting new memorabilia.

A wise person once said, “How can you possibly know where you are going if you don’t know where you have been?” I totally agree. I enjoy spending time with this quilt, playing back the memories in my head.

Over the years I have made a lot of these quilts for other people. I call the series my African Canvas Memory Quilt series. Check them out at www.africancanvasquilts.wordpress.com.

If you own one of my memory quilts, I would love to know if you are still enjoying it.
