"United Forever" - Remembering 9/11 in an art quilt

 United Forever

On this day every year I bring this quilt out of storage to honor the memory of all the precious lives that were lost on 9/11/01.  It was one of my early art quilts and created soon after the attack on the Trade Center.  This quilt may lack sophistication but it brings the day back as if it were today.  Never, ever should we forget-- those lives lost on 9/11, the first responders, the families that lost loved ones, and the men of our armed forces who have given their all for our nation.

    1. Thank you, Mia. Because this was created before I knew much about art quilting and because my understanding of how quilts "should" be quilted, I've never shown this before. Still, it is close to my heart because it brings back a wide range of personal emotions.
