Special Designer Tribute to the September 11, 2001 Tragedy - Part VII of an Ongoing Series
World Trade Center Memorial Quilt
The World Trade Center Quilts are an ongoing project that, when completed, will consist of five quilts.
Initially, Kathie Baumgardner, the WTC Quilt project coordinator, had hoped to have them completed in time for the first anniversary of the tragedy, September 11, 2002.
Kathy has had to revise this schedule; she explains, "I haven't received enough squares to complete all 5 quilts, so now stitchers are being allowed to stitch more than one square and we are looking for more volunteers to help out.
The deadline has been moved to March 1, 2003. This will allow us the time necessary to receive enough squares.
The stitchers participating in this project felt it was more important to complete all 5 quilts rather than just to complete one WTC Quilt by the 1st anniversary."
The quilts will be presented to the local areas affected by the terrorist acts at the WTC, PA, DC, the NYPD and the FDNY. Details will follow as to exactly where they will be hung.
Kathie was also the coordinator for the Columbine Healing Quilt Project. Those quilts were delivered on the first anniversary of that tragic event.
