9/11 wall hanging

I made this quilt right after 9/11.  It is machine pieced and hand quilted.  Maybe only in retrospect did it seem like a response to that awful day.  I think I was going for a sort of abstract stained-glass effect.  I hung it on the wall above our red couch and it looked nice there, but after awhile it ended up feeling sort of sad and violent to me, so I took it down.

Always sobering to think of that day and its aftermath.
