A Special Quilt

Tuesday, I  handed over what to me is a very special quilt. There is nothing spectular about the pieceing or the fabric or the quilting; in fact all of it is quite ordinary.  The special part of this is that the quilt is going to a Veteran.  This quilt will be presented to the oldest veteran following the pledge of allegiance at the Salute our Soldiers event in Nashua NH on November 7th
