    My niece is serving her third tour in Iraq. I wanted
    to make her a quilt so I asked what she wanted. She said something "girly". She was pleased.

    That is nice. She is going to like that. I bet having something like that in that place is like having a peice of home close by.

    Beautiful quilt! I'm sure that she will love having that with her in her barraks. My daughter certainly did. She would also take it to her office since they had the A/C on so high she froze.
    Tell her "Thank You" for her service.
