A collection of Pentagon Quilts will be on display at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center from July 4 to September 15 on the Concourse level of the building. The Reagan Building is located at 1300 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, in Washington, DC.

In the aftermath of the terrorist attacks on September 11, people from around the world crafted homemade quilts for survivors of the Pentagon terrorist attack. Fourteen of the 60 quilts in the Pentagon collection will be on display to the public. The quilts were created by a diverse group of people, from expert quilters to elementary school children.
