The quilts for Jen and Mel are family oriented quilts... each quilt has a center block with the family name, there are Sunbonnet Sue and Sam blocks to represent each child, there is a wedding block with the couple's wedding date, and on the sides of that block is the blocks that represent Jen and her husband. There are blocks with the parents, grandparents and brothers and sisters of the couple. I just hope it is a quilt that will be passed down in each family. Each girl chose their blocks, and the colors, and fabrics for their quilts... I just designed and made the quilt. I had planned on three quilts, and as I talked to each of the three girls with which blocks they choose, I found that all three had chosen the same block. They had about ten or so blocks to choose from and they all like the pinwheel in the star block.. Mel chose three blocks, Jen chose two.. Border is checker squares block with a star block on the corners...

Now to get the quilts to the girls.... As I can't go anywhere right now..
Have a little Pom ready to deliver her puppies sometime this week and I won't leave her alone. She is due Friday, but the poor little thing looks like a watermelon right now.. she just waddles around the house and she is so miserable.
