    Would a shield shape do in memory of lost firefighters?
    How about a block of linked hands in different skin tones?

    Both great ideas. Thanks.
    I am trying to come up with a block featuring a symbol that best represents the firefighters, police, and all the rest who came to rescue and dig through the rubble.

    Good work on the block you made. Try your local library for books on 9/11. I have "September 11 - a testimony." It is all photographs, but you can get some ideas. There is one photo of the skyline from the water, with a the silhouette of a police officer on the ferry. Also, a photo of smoking trees bordering the field in Pennsylvania. Of course, you need a flag block and a "we will never forget" block.
    Keep us posted on your quilt. And thank you.

    Thanks, thomp116, I will see if I can find that book.
    I am hoping to make the center of the quilt a waving flag.

    I got confused by what you meant by 9-11-11. 4 airplanes coming from a common point and then going in different directions... a mountain to the north, two together pointing east toward the buildings/ocean and one a little south toward the the pentagon. They could come from a blue sky but where they end up be a firey yellow orange and red.
