Nine years ago today, on the first anniversary of 11 September, I did not want to spend the day sitting in front of the television, reliving That Day. I wanted to remember in my own way, by doing something thoughtful, constructive and creative. I got out some batiks and the last of my Cherrywood fabrics and cut and sewed and got most of a quilt top done. Then Life interfered & it slowly moved lower and lower in my to-do pile. A while back, I found another batik that I liked for the border. So, this morning, I thought it appropriate to stitch on the border. This is my salute to the lives lost and the lives changed That Day.

What a special thing to do on the 10th anniversary. It's a really stunning quilt Beth.

It's a beautiful quilt and a touching tribute. I love the way the four corner blocks look faded--like those we lost--and the other blocks look alive and strong--the survivors. Very powerful.

So beautiful Beth. Such a lovely thought!
