    I've been asked to make a geneology quilt, starting with a circle in the center and then radiate out thru parents, grandparents, etc. Has anyone ever done this? Or do you know of a site that might help me? Or has there ever been a post on here pertaining to something like this, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for any help or suggestions.

    Someone on here had a beautiful family tree quilt, but I don't know who it was. you might do a search on this site for "genealogy" or "family tree" or "ancestors" or something like that.

    I made a family tree quilt with family photos and autograph blocks for my grandfather's 90th birthday. I'm in my iPod at work but check my posted topics for "avatar quilt". I also have a family tree quilt template/pattern bookmarked on my computer at home. When I get home in the morning, I'll send you the link.

    there is a preprinted panel that you just applique the included name labels on, heres a link to one for sale on ebay now..this is the one I did.
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...8#ht_751wt_905

    Theres also another one in a tree format made with photos but its harder to have photos of everyone. Neither are circular but some ideas anyway.

    I am into genealogy and we had to do a panel for each side of the tree, my husbands and mine...because its endless!

    photo transfer log tree -on my to do list

    Here's a small wall hanging I did for a great nephew's birth.

    The fabric in the center was a tree, hard to tell here. That's where the geneology was printed. Each of the other blocks were signature squares from those in attendance at his baby shower......including 2 year old cousin Maddie's block, top left. :)

    I've never seen these done as quilts, but I'm also a genealogist, and I believe the kind of "tree" she's talking about is like this:
