The World Trade Center Quilts are an ongoing project that will, hopefully, be completed this summer in time for the first anniversary of the tragedy. Kathie Baumgardner is the WTC Quilt project coordinator. She was also the coordinator for the Columbine Healing Quilt Project, which were delivered on the first anniversary of that tragic event, so she felt the first anniversary would be appropriate for the WTC Quilt project as well. The quilts will be presented to the local areas affected by the terrorist acts. Details will follow as to exactly where they will be hung.

 Teeny Tiny Snowman

2001 Angel 

 July 4th Necklace

By Lucy of Thimbleart

Lucy, of the Thimbleart Collection has designed 2 thimbles, a snowman and an angel, as well as a necklace, all with a patriotic theme. She explains her motivation for creating these designs, "My 30 year old nephew died suddenly on March 12, 2001. Our family was devastated. Matt was a producer of the Salt Lake Olympic Website. We struggled with..."why?" On September 11th, the answer was clear to me. There were so many young lives lost on 9 ­11, that our Matt had to go ahead of them to welcome them to heaven. The Patriotic Snowman is my tribute to 9 -11 and the Olympics. The angel with the yellow ribbon is for the soldiers fighting for America. The Patriotic Necklace is to wear and show our support. My new Statue of Liberty thimble is for America."
