Let's Roll

It seems appropriate to post these pictures today.  These are of a quilt I made in response to the 9/11/01 terrorist attacks.  The quilt was part of an exhibit by AQS authors that traveled for 3 years following 9/11.

There is a lot of symbolism in this quilt.  The two towers are represented by the side borders, the top and bottom borders are a variation of New York Beauty, the four stars represent the 4 planes and there is a pentagon in the center of each.  Of course, the center eagle represents the USA.

It is somewhat difficult to see, quilted in gray on the blue background are the Statue of Liberty, The Liberty Bell, the words "In Remembrance" and "Let's Roll"

Let's hope that the death of Osama Bin Laden represents the beginning of the end of terrorism against the USA.  We must always remember those who died on 9/11, but we must also remember those who are still fighting for our freedom.

Let us always remember to celebrate and hold dear our freedom!

Until Next Time,

Thank you, Julie. This quilt hangs in what I call the red bedroom and the grandkids call the patriotic room. It's a great reminder to be thankful for our country!
