Cell-Made Quilts

How often do you hear about quilts being made as a rehabilitation effort? Fine Cell Work, a fine arts group, has been working with British prisoners since 1998, teaching them embroidery and quilting. The resulting pieces let cellmates learn new skills and earn some money. The quilts are pretty interesting, too, as is the title of the page: "Quilty as Charged." (Take special note of the "Jail House Rock" pillow -- what a kick!)

Take a look at these photos, and you'll find out more about the group at the same time...enjoy.
