Design Wall – No More Names Quilt – New York blocks

I have finished another group of blocks for my “No More Names” mass shooting quilt. These are the victims of a shooting in 2009, in Binghamton, New York.  Working on these blocks saddened me because I realized that I had forgotten completely about this shooting, which is exactly the point of the quilt.  Horrible events like this one occurs, we hear about it for a few days, and then it disappears from our consciousness until another one happens (all too frequently) and we are yet again reminded of the string of shootings in this country. I am hoping that this cycle will end.
