I want to give my first quilt the name of hope....
Because I’m trying to express it somehow. My life in this place is the patches and the stitches are the different stages I've been going through. The ribbons are the razor wire that surrounds this prison. And the eagle is me, who with the help I've been getting from recovery & religious services, and some of the staff members, I feel I will have the tools to fly when my time gets here. Like it says in Isaiah 40:31 “They that hope in the Lord will renew their strength, they will soar as with eagles' wings; they will run and not grow weary, walk and not grow faint.”

A personal note from the quilter:

I am 48 years old and the mother of three beautiful daughters and the grandmother of an eight year old girl. I work as a porter in my cottage, and love to do community service through the Stitching Post. I’ve never made a quilt before but I really enjoyed working on this one.
