The flag depicts our home, where they started, the common road they traveled, and the new, divergent roads they face after graduation. The background is half purple (though it looks blue) and half gold, to represent their colleges, and each side contains an icon that represents their chosen major. Even on their different paths, Christ is the Force that guides them individually, yet ties them together.
The second project is a bit of a Jeff Foxworthy joke: "If your quilt is made from fabric you got at The Wal-Mart and 4 scrap pieces of batting stitched together; if there are two places where the block corners don't even come close to matching up; if you were using pliers to pull the needle through the layers while tying the quilt and slipped and ripped a hole with the nose of the pliers; and if the binding is made from the excess fabric from your sister-in-law's dining room curtains . . .
