A Mother's Quilt - in process

My oldest friend Cathy (seriously, we were in first grade together) has a daughter Michele who has two daughters Anna and Elizabeth. Anna is now in middle school, and Elizabeth is in third grade. Michele has saved their clothes and given them to me to make a quilt, the kind of quilt Michele can wrap herself up in as she remembers her girls when they were babies and toddlers. All the clothes were cut into 8.5" squares or 4.5" squares. I think this quilt will be about 65" x 85". Michele and I share the same birth date next month, and that's my deadline. This quilt won't win any design awards. But it will sure take first prize in sentiment!
