Where We Come From
by Angela Maltzman
Angela Sanchez Molina Maltzman was born in Cuba and came to Miami in 1954. She became an American citizen in 1960 and has worked for the State of Florida for 27 years. "I am an immigrant," she writes. "And when I learned about the contest, the first thing that came to mind was those people who risked their lives to come to this free country, running from Communist Cuba." Ms. Maltzman belongs to several quilting associations and began quilting ten years ago as a way to keep herself occupied when she broke her foot.
