The events of September 11 rocked our world. Across the nation and around the world quilters turned to quilting, as they always do in times of crisis, to express themselves and to reach out to others. The American quilter's Society, one of the world's largest quilt member organizations and a publisher of books for quilters, initiated two post-September 11 projects (United We quilt and The anchor Project) that offered positive avenues for expression. This book showcases those projects, and in so doing, gives quilters a touchstone for the shared emotions surrounding those events. AUTHORBIO: Museum of the American Quilter's Society holds a themed contest each year. This book honors the finalists. AUTHORBIO: Helen Squires has been a quilt teacher, designer of quilting patterns, guest lecturer, auctioneer, and Q&A columnist for 30 years, and is well known for her six books in the Dear Helen series of quilting patterns. Helen began her publishing career as the "Dear Helen, Can You Tell Me....?" columnist for "Lady's Circle Patchwork Quilts" magazine in 1978 and published the first of her "Dear Helen" books in 1987. REVIEW: AQS invited its authors to make quilts in response to the 911 tragedy in NY and Washington. The 33 results, which lean strongly on the American Eagle and the flag, are shown in this book. Profits go to victims' funds.
