Pride In America Quilt

I wanted to share this Pride In America quilt with you today. A remembrance of September 11, 2001.

This was a collaborative effort among the students in my husband's Recreation Leadership class and the Recreation Majors Club at Montclair State University in 2001. I assembled the blocks and added the stenciled borders. It was quilted by Janice Hairston, a member of our local guild. 

The back and label. 

I'm sure you all remember exactly what you were doing on that fateful day. I certainly do. On the 10th anniversary I blogged about events following 9-11 which you can read about here :)

  1. What an important quilt. Hard to believe it's been 15 years. So many stories of survival and grief.

  2. Your remembrance quilt is another sobering reminder about that day.

  3. What a nice memorial quilt. So many great patriotic details. I'm thinking of making a patriotic quilt with the r&w broken dishes. Not sure how patriotic I'm feeling during this election process. Off to follow your link.
