Hands Of Time

Joy Major
Marysville, OH

40" x 45”

Turn the hands of time slowly, turn the hands of time back.
To a time that I've missed and bring those people back.
To a time of laughter, to a time of joy.
Turn the hands of time slowly, turn the hands of time back.

Two-sided quilt. Back is very thought provoking! Columns of names of the women imprisoned and the length of time they are sentenced to.

 

Quilt Back:

A personal note from the quilter:

I was born to Sanford and Betty Major. I came to prison in January of 1998 and I’m serving a life sentence with parole eligibility upon twenty five full years. I enjoy reading and sewing. I spend most of my days doing community service work. Upon release I will return to Cincinnati Ohio.
