WIP - family tree by sarah jane

WIP .  .  .  .

I've been working on this family tree wall hanging by Sarah Jane from her Children at Play line.  Sarah Jane has the cutest illustrations!   She has a whole room full of coordinating fabrics in this line. 

Check out this recent doodle on her sketch pad, she's naming it "Mora and her magic bunnies".  SO CutE!!!



My daughter-in-law embroidered all her ancestral info on this sampler, and asked me to quilt it for her. 



I decided to quilt around all the figures instead of meandering through the whole piece like on Sarah Jane's website.  



But I still feel like I need to quilt a tight meander in the light pink, surrounding all the figures, which will make them pop even more.



A quilted running flower through the border adds a nice finish.




Second grand-baby born:
