Quilt titled Angels Are Born
created by Michele Miroff in memory of Michelle Scarpitta
and made with fabric, batting, and thread. This quilt depicts a woman with long brown hair holding an American flag heart with wings. Eight large yellow stars float around the woman. Printed on the back of the quilt is the message: "For my friend, Tony Melluzzo, who lived through September 11th and for his niece, Michelle Scarpitta, who did not. This quilt was made in memory of Michelle, and all the angels who were born on September 11th. Each of the stars are for all the angels that arose from acts against our people: the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, the flights, the USS Cole, and our embassies overseas. Made with love and respect by Michele Miroff Long Island, NY."
