“I have not given up. I’m here and I want outta here, but, in the meantime, I will create.” That’s the message Maureen Kelleher says she gets from the quilts created by prison inmates. While it may be surprising to learn that people serving life sentences are quilters, it’s a wonderful way for them to express their humanity.
