The American Folk Art Museum in New York City displays this beautiful 9/11 National Tribute Quilt. The quilt was organized and assembled by the Steel Quilters in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 2002. The quilt measures an amazing 8 x 30 ft. It is the creation of the artists, Kathy S. Crawford, Amber M. Dalley, Jian X. Li, and Dorothy L. Simback, with the help of countless others in tribute to the victims of the September 11, 2001, attack on America.
For more background information and detail pictures, the Online Quilt Museum also has an exhibit. If you'd like to see progress pictures of the quilt being made, click here. There are also some very interesting facts about the quilt right here. Talk about a huge compilation quilt!
As usual, the giving spirit of quilters (and people in general) always gives me hope and puts a smile on my face. It's nice being surrounded by good folk.
