Happy Martin Luther King Day!

Behind Every Great Man by Anita Crosby

Anita Crosby’s quilt called Behind Every Great Man is my all time favorite Martin Luther King quilt. This quilt features Coretta Scott King firmly behind her man Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The message is crystal clear. Even the greatest among us need help.

The featured quilt of the week in the January 16, 2011 edition of the Start Your Week With a Quilt newsletter is called Behind Every Great Man.  It was created by Anita Crosby.

Each year as we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King’s birthday, I am drawn to this quilt. It is a quilt with a clear message that needs no explanation. With only two powerful images, Anita reminds us that whatever Dr. King’s many accomplishments, his wife Coretta was there supporting his efforts every step of the way.
