All Because 2 People Fell in Love

The family tree quilt is complete and I have finally taken pictures of it.  I will be giving it to my husband's grandparents this weekend at their 60th Anniversary party.


There are six children and their spouses, twelve grandchildren and their spouses, and four great-grandchildren.


I free motion quilted with a varigated blue thread around the trunk and leaves.  I also reverse appliqued the heart with their names and the year they were married.


I used dark green leaves as a filler and the light green leaves were hand embroidered with the names of all the children.



The quilt is appropriately titled, "All because two people fell in love"

This is my entry into the quilt category in the Ellison Lane Quilts Summer Sewing Contest.

  3. What a beautiful quilt! I've often thought of doing this for my husband's parents. I'm not sure I'd be so quick as you from start to finish, though. I love your design. Such a thoughtful gift. Thank you for linking up!
