This quilt was in process when the terrorist attack occurred in September. Rather than concentrate on the horrendous events that followed, I prefer to think that we will emerge as stronger individuals, and our families and country have joined together as one. Mother nature always helps heal the visible scars of war. Even after the most tragic events, grasses and wild flowers will begin to grow through and soften the physical remains of battle. Three clusters of black-eyed susans are embroidered on a background of dark green, brown, gray, purple, black, blue and turquoise squares. The inner border is a yellow and black stripe that is fused and appliqued. The binding is a brown, green and gold check. Iridescent bugle beads are stitched around the leaves. Heavily machine quilted. Now in a private collection.
This quilt was awarded Best Wall Quilt at the 2002 Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival, Williamsburg, VA; First Place and Most Creative Use of Thread Award at Quilter's Heritage Celebration, 2004, Lancaster, PA.
