Good Things Are Happening!

Good Things are Happening by O.V. Brantley, 2007

Sometimes I combine my two passions — quilts and mediations. I learned my mediation skills on the job in a daily environment of conflict as the ¬†Fulton County Attorney. After all, moving a democracy forward requires consensus even in the largest, most diverse county in Georgia. While not always pleasant, helping to resolve conflicts to move Fulton County forward was fulfilling.

Good Things Are Happening is a quilt I made to document and preserve my Fulton County memories. It gets its name from a slogan made popular by my personal commissioner Bill Edwards. He was always upbeat and positive about the good things that were happening in South Fulton County.

Working through conflict can produce beautiful results.
