    How about a family photo. Or, make the last block the label "Made with love by....."

    or several photos of them at different ages/stages of their lives.

    Also, is this a special occasion quilt ... eg. presented in honour of their 50th anniversary? ... you could do a block to acknowledge the milestone.
