    I made this quilt last year for my brother George and his wife Heidi for their 50th anniversary. It started out as a wall hanging with pictures of their twelve grandchildren and grew to include themselves, their four daughters, their four sons-in-law, their house, and an anniversary square, and is now a bed quilt.

    it is bordered with words describing their life together
