    Arkansas's Hog Heaven

    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!!!

    Love your quilt design! We had friends south of Fayetteville, AR and we stopped in the town many times to eat, etc. and I have never seen such sports fans in all of my travels. HOGS everywhere! I am sure she will treasure the quilt.

    You really just can't understand the Razorback love until you've lived in Arkansas. I'm not even a native and the bug is already catching.
