My sister-in-law's mom lost her husband 2 years ago. That year for Christmas, I gave her "fabric" with the promise of an Arkansas quilt. 2 years later and an entire room at her house decorated around this "quilt" that is finally done. She LOVES it!!! I gave it to her on Friday evening after we entered her husband's ashes into one of the National Cemetaries and she received her flag for his commitment to service. She is truly in Hog Heaven!!!
