A very special 4-H Remembrance Quilt w/Updates!

Just finishing up this very precious Remembrance Quilt of a special 4-H youth, Tiffany:

Originally we had planned to use a particular panto on this quilt, but this very special quilt really needed more customized quilting than a panto could offer.  Sooo, Miss Betty & I decided we should go ALL out and McTavish and 'flag quilt', aka flag waves throughout this quilt.  And I think it was the best choice, what do you think?

McTavishing in outer border, flag waves in interior
Used one of my favorite threads in the outer border, Superior's King Tut Freedom - and it quilted out wonderfully well:
