    Remember Me, a pentagon shaped quilt created to memorialize the lives lost on 9/11/01.

    This pentagon shaped quilt, "Remember Me," has the names of the people that lost their lives on 9/11. Each name is hand inked onto individual strips of fabric. Other information is included on each strip, i.e.: where they were, which airline, rank in the service, etc. Each strip is hand sewn individually onto a mesh backing that hangs behind the main artwork. Rows/strips are numbered on the back so strips can be located using a master list. Finding any strip takes less than 30 seconds.

    The images were worked from photographs for historic accuracy. The Towers are hand quilted to scale into the position where they should be standing. An undulating United States flag is also hand quilted into the background of the artwork.

    This quilt is available for display, but not for sale.

    WOW!!! That is really nice. I would love to see some of the tags. Is there a chance you can maybe post a picture showing a close up of a few tags? Wonderful job you did.

    The fb page states it's approximately 45x90. Big! I didn't realize how big from looking at the pictures.
