For days and weeks after the attack the American flag was flown EVERYWHERE. People flew it from their cars, nearly every house had a flag, it was flown from the sides of big buildings and cliffs. I remember seeing one boy with purple hair proudly waving the flag from the corner and he had tears in his eyes. "God Bless the USA" was applauded so loudly you could hardly hear the song. My youngest granddaughter made me 2 pictures of a flag to put in my car windows. It was a good time as well as a bad time. Patriotism was everywhere.
I sat down and my fingers just started working on this quilt as if they had a life of their own. I created the White House. I created little houses (see my previous post)I even created little cars. And every little house and big house and little car had an American flag. I didn't follow a pattern. I had a girl machine quilt it for me and if you look you can see the stars in her pattern. I created my 9/11 quilt just in time for the first anniversary. Diane
