Family Tree

I have made a family tree of flower children. Do you know how hard it is to acquire pictures of your children's spouses as small children? HARD! This quilt measures 34x42. The background is strip pieced ,quilted and bound. I then appliqued the tree and sewed all the flowers on. I think there were 43 all together. They include all spouses. Maybe someday I will get all the pictures - I hope. I posted a close up on the yahoo site.

What a huge undertaking you have here but a nice memento. I really like the background and all the texture achieved there. Will you somehow label each of the photos so someone knows who they are? Nice idea!

I think you have made a lovely keepsake. I'm sure your family will appreciate having this artistic memory of their heritage.
