    I want to make one. Did you make this up or is their a pattern? About the divorce, I would ignore that, and just put the apples for the kids with their dad. If someone remarries, add another apple somewhere close to the spouse and add more apples for the children next to his apple. I think from looking at the quilt that the apples below a row and farther out are the grandchildren and gggrandchildren of the children on the branches. Is that right?

    No I DIDNT HAVE A PATTERN I had to use my brain this time and that was hard to do the large apples are for mom and dad at the top the next coming down next to the trunk are all their children 6 out beside each child is there children in under each of them are their children it took a lot of laying it on and taking it off but I had a great time doing the 5 guilts the greatest time was seeing the joy in my mom and brothers reserving there own quilt now that was worth it all thank you all again
