    I made this quilt a number of years ago for my son in memory of a dear friend and firefighter who perished on 9/11. Unfortunately I don't have a picture of it quilted but here it is basted (one of the designs quilted in the border is the twin towers skyline). He cried when I presented it to him and he has it proudly hanging in his man cave.

    Amazing quilt. I have to say it is one of the most beautiful 9-11 quilts I have seen.

    Your quilt is amazing and much more professional looking than mine but still means so much to honor this day and the loved ones who lost their lives in 911 and since then related to disease and etc from working there.

    A really beautiful quilt, and really touching on this day!
    I just watched the memorial to the World Trade Center firemen tonight, and the memorial ceremonies this morning. A lot of tears!! Here in NY with so many who were either there that day or died it was such a day of remembrance, as it was for all Americans who love our country.

    A wonderful quilt. So important to respect all those who gave their lives that awful day! And to respect ourselves as the ones gifted to be alive to carry on and make the world a better place for everyone, each in our own unique way.

    That is a wonderful tribute to our brave men. I agree, it is the most beautiful tribute quilt that I have seen.
