A Change is Gonna Come

The 3 O'clock Call

Tracie Hawkins and Valerie Russell

This is the second quilt in the Obama series. I had to create my own circle with a pencil and string. The 18 ellipses at the top and bottom are really globes representing Senator Obama's travels while campaigning for president. The smaller circles on the clock are maps of different countries. The words and music to "A Change is Gonna Come" are along the top and bottom of the clock. Barack and Michelle Obama are doing the fist bump at the 3 o'clock hour. The 3 0'clock call is about Hillary Clinton and her advertisement against Senator Obama asking if he would be the best candidate prepared for an international crises.
