the highlight of our summer was a family reunion held in island park. it was the hub's family, including his grandparents, their four children, their 19 grandchildren and 25+ great-grandkids.
my contribution to the cause was a quilt-- a family tree quilt to be given to grandma and grandpa p at the reunion.
as i searched for some inspiation online, i found this quilt by sandra saunders. loved it! had to recreate it.
each branch of the tree represents one of the four children.
grandma and grandpa's initials are carved into the tree with embroidered hearts around them.
and each family has their own circle with the handprints layered, oldest to youngest.
a simple backing-- i wish you could see the quilting. it was kinda cool--
the presentation-- i'm pretty sure g and g loved it.
they even sent me a box of chocolates as a 'thank you'. oh! they were so yum!
a pretty great looking family, don't ya think?
