First let me explain the week or shall I say two weeks that I have had.
There was a very sickly elderly lady that my aunt was taking care of. She was no blood relations to the family. She had been 1 of my aunt's mother in law and has been in the family for as long as I can remember.
When the quilting bug bite me, she is the one that I gave my very first quilt to at the beginning of winter
She past away at home with her only granddaughter, my aunt , myself and my daughter there, last Thursday. She was a very special lady with a big heart and loved everyone as thought they were her own.
As I became close to her,She explain that She had everything planned out when her time came and want me to make sure that everything went as she had planned, and that I would help her granddaughter when the time came since the granddaughter had no one else that would stick with her. To which I was more than happy to do.
She was laid to rest the past Monday and EVERYTHING went as she had planned.
On the same Thursday when she passed away, I received a message from my daughter that a friend's son that was surving in the Army was killed in action.
My daughter and son in law is out in AR with his family, burial will be tomorrow .
Here is where I need your help.
I want to make something on the lines of a lap quilt or a wall hanger,
I have purchased material with the large army logo, some white, some red, some blue and some with the small army logo on it.
I dont want to spend a year on this, so I will be sending it out to be quilted.
Any and all ideas would be greatly appreciated!
