finish it up Friday - family tree

The family tree is finally quilted, bound and is hanging.  This was a really fun project to make with my daughter-in-law.  She embroidered all the names, and I quilted it for her.

I had some potential problems with wavy borders since the middle was so tightly quilted, but a bias binding really helped balance that out.  You can read more about the process of this project here and here.  

I was thinking of leaving the middle part unquilted (above), but I'm so glad I didn't! (below)



  1. This is such a great idea! Well done on the quilting!

  2. That's an awesome project! I love it!

  3. This is beautiful and such a wonderful heirloom to hand down each generation!! Congrats. I am a genealogist and a quilter also, but never combined them together.

  4. this is just darling!!! What a treasure!
