The Sandy Hook Tribute Quilt, named "Forget-Me-Not 12-14-12," was made by Don Beld and Bernice Foster. This 60" x 60" mourning quilt commemorates the tragic shooting in Newtown, CT. The pieced border block is called "Connecticut."
Each of the 27 blue forget-me-not flowers represents a victim. There are also 27 blue leaves on the willow tree. The names and ages are written in the border. This quilt is modeled after mourning quilts and samplers popular in the 1800's.
