Family Squares # 43 and # 44

I am so happy with all the squares received by family!!!

I do have additional friends and relatives I would really like to have send a square so I'm putting together a newsletter about the quilt and how to make a wishes card. I want to be able to go through the scrapbook and be able to talk to Lizzy about each relative and how much they loved her even before meeting her.

Each square will have special meaning for her in the future. I am so glad to be doing this for Lizzy!!

These squares are from cousin's Kuhn, living in Illinois (my cousin grew up in Maine, her brothers actually sent in squares: Stephenson and Soule!!!) and cousins' Clarke from New Hampshire/Massachusetts who live near us in the winter in St. Augustine. They sent a great ocean fabric.
Thank you!!

This is a special one - From my MOM!!!

My Mom selected a great fabric for the quilt. It has cardinal birds and chickadee's too. You know why??? Maine and Missouri. Just like M and M's. These two State's are joined in history in a special way.
Maine existed as a county of Massachusetts. When Maine decided to break away from the "massholes" (ooops!!), it was policy to have a slave and a non-slave State join at the same time, equally balancing the States. DH can explain I hope.
So Missouri had to wait until Maine decided to join as the non-slave State. Maine joined first in 1820 then Missouri. Not sure why but Ford has a very natural liking and feelings toward the State of Maine.

Good thing she picked birds, as the State flowers are the white hawthorne and pine cone!! Ugly fabric!!

Back to the fabric - State birds are Cardinals and Chickadee.
Now my Mom needs to get her "wish" card done......
