So far this is what I have in mind for Ailey's quilt. Its got lots of applique involved and by the amount of pieces I stuck in there, she should be graduating from high school by the time I actually get it done. As of yet, I have no idea how to go about measuring and making sure the pieces all fit together to make the end result, but I'll figure something out. I've also got the boys' quilts in mind, but haven't worked it out in picture form like I have with Ailey's yet. I do have a few pics of what my inspiration for them is, so I'll just put those on here for now.
Here is inspiration for the boys' quilts:
