Q90 – MEM911 – Wall Hanging – Quilt


Number two Wall Hanging – Quilt of our Cathedral Windows Series is now complete. May I introduce to you MEM911.

MEM911 is our thoughts in commemoration of the 10th Anniversary of the September 11, 2001 Tragedy. Our Quilt and Wall Hanging is not intended to be a reproduction of the tragedy and horrific devastation, but a quiet memory. A quiet and ethereal portrayal of an event that has been etched in the minds of millions; an incident that should never be forgotten.

The abstract and graphic representation of the Cathedral Window is a focus of our reflection. This is a generation of rising shades of fabrics in the clouds underlining the glass and metal of the Twin Towers. The beige fabric is the structure and strength that hold together all these thoughts and memories. The patterned squares in the horizontal cuts of the colored fabrics represent the windows and the many lives lost and those affected.

If you look closely at the quilting you will see an impression in thread of the Twin Towers. We wanted the memory to be engraved in both the clouds and the patterns of the fabrics.

The dimensions of MEM911 are: Width – 39” (99 cms); Length – 48” (122 cms). The 100% cotton check fabrics were designed by Michael Miller. The separating grey cloud fabric is a product of Timeless Treasures Fabrics. Our quilting includes three stylings; horizontal lines in each of the rectangles and squares; an accented quilting of highlighting the clouds; and vertical and horizontal lines representing the Twin Towers.

Here are some more images and close-ups of MEM911.
