Quilters will always remember their lives through their quilts. I think we should document our lives more often in our quilts. Email has pretty much insured that we won't leave any actual letters behind! Sign your quilts with a story of who, what, why, where, and when. Leave a legacy.

I thought I'd share a little wall hanging I made after 2001. How many remember that it was a Tuesday that year? How many remember the year? How many remember the shock we felt to be attacked? I'm not a political person, but as a quilter of the last century documented her life and times in her quilts, I felt the need to embroider these simple words on my red, white and blue wall hanging. I believe I got the pattern from the internet somewhere. Perhaps the Jinny Beyer site? That I don't really remember, but when I went to work that morning, I found out that one of my friends' college roommates worked in the towers. Simply putting this on this quilt means that future generations will remember too.
