Family Tree Quilt in Progress

The past couple weeks I have been doing more brainstorming than sewing.  I have been trying to figure out a way to fit 29 photos on a Family Tree Quilt for a friend.  I had the background designed for a while.  It is a simple sky and ground surrounded by a piano key border.
I designed this in Microsoft excel of all places.  :)

The hard part was trying to figure out where to put all the branches and people to make it pleasing to the eye.  Each person will also have three leaves of fabric that represent themselves surrounding their photo. 

This is what I have so far, next is to draw tree to fit the people.
Then I can trim and reposition photos and leaves before everything gets ironed down with wonder under.



  1. HAH! I use Microsofe Excel all the time! It helps me rough out all kinds of things. I salute your genius!
