We Will Never Forget

walter matuza

I made this block to honor Walter Matuza, Jr, New York resident. He was the father of 3 boys, killed in the Trade Center. Each section represents Walter's life: he served in the armed forces; family fishing trips, loved playing with his 3 boys and cherished his wife dearly.

Slideshows from the United In Memory (website is down) Quilt Project. The first showing of the completed panels was on August 30 - September 1, 2002 on the Queen Mary. The quilt panels (16,000 square feet ) (if aligned end to end would stretch across a quarter-mile) toured a number of cities across the USA and was finished in 11 months. It was a grass-roots effort. Over 3,600 volunteers from every State in the United States and 18 countries contributed to the assembly of the quilt panels.
