Introducing Colored Girl Lawyer Rocks!

Colored Girl Lawyer Rocks! documents my lawyer life in cloth. Somehow I managed to make it from my little segregated town of 6000 people to Vanderbilt Law School.

I chose to make the quilt mostly white because that is the world my professional life took me — mostly white. The scales of justice include the words “justice” and “peace”. The birds symbolize freedom and flight, and  flowers remind me that maintaining femininity is important in a man’s world. Stars are sprinkled throughout the background because to be a star is to be excellent at your craft.
