Everyone remembers where they were that day. I was on my way to the county courthouse for jury duty and heard the first reports on the radio. When I arrived in the jury room, the Today show was on and it wasn't clear yet what had actually happened. Then jury selection began, and I was selected for a murder case, so rare in our little town. The judge let us leave early that day so people could check on their loved ones.
When we went to the red & white exhibit in NYC last spring, we were able to see the National Tribute Quilt at the American Folk Art Museum in Lincoln Center. It's hard to find the right words to describe it. Karen Griska has many more photos on display in the Online Quilt Museum.
