What a wonderful project, Cheley! Fabulous! It will be a 'forever family heirloom' and a gift of love!

If this was my project, here's what I'd do to memorialize the meaning of each square:

Create a 25 Squares document on Word ("insert chart"). Then type the meaning in each square. Print. Then laminate.

Or, screen the document onto fabric. I think T-shirt shops can screen anything you want onto a piece of fabric.

I like the idea of the laminated copy best. You can print the 25-Squares document onto really cool paper. Some paper looks like a "scroll". Some paper is ecru, with gold embossed edges, like a frame. Then present it laminated, or in a plexi frame-less frame that sits up on its own.
