    Here is a photo quilt we made for the matriarch of a family. It is king size with 40 blocks. We don't usually put so many on one quilt but she had 13 children and lots and lots of grandchildren and grands. We made a pillow scarf instead of shams with the greats and great-greats. Am including some closeups of the separate blocks.

    That is so neat--it would be really fun to just look at all the pics. Thanks for including some close up pics too.
