    I finally finished!! This is a quilt/wallhanging in honor of my Mother's family. It has her parents and all the siblings under it. It will travel with our bi-annual famiy reunions!! We found pictures of the entire family "except" for my Grandmother. According to my mother in-law my grandmother forbid anyone of take her photograph...she thought the camera was a sign of the devil...LOL

    The tree labels have the Name, Date of birth and date of deatch

    Under each picture is a short bio; what their occupations were, who they married, who their children were and where their final resting places are.

    What a wonderful tribute. I love the way you have displayed the photos. Is the printing under the photo's a little bit about the person?
