Quilters Remember September 11th

Have you visited the National Tribute Quilt at the American Folk Art Museum (Lincoln Square Branch) in New York City? To see close-up photos and read about this amazing quilt, visit the Online Quilt Museum Exhibit.
The man in the black coat and hat appeared just as I was photographing the quilt. I think his shilouette adds a somber note to the photo. The Empire guild meets tomorrow. I'm sure we'll have a quiet moment to reflect on this sad day.

A lovely quilt to remember a very sad day! I like the photo with the man dressed in black - it also adds perspective to the size of the quilt.

Just magnificent. The four ladies in PA certainly have created a wonderful memorial to those who gave all.

A day that will never be forgotten. A very powerful quilt and the man is black was an appropriate happenstance.
