    This quilt is named "Abbey's Family Tree." It is made for my 10 yr old niece, Abbey. I'm having family members sign their names on the tree in the center of the quilt...

    This was made using a panel in the center, surrounded by One Block/Month Swap blocks. Thank you, everyone, who traded blocks with me. As you see, it made a stunning quilt.

    The flying geese were made with Ricky Tim's 3D Flying Geese method, out of scrap fabric from the Boomerang Swap. Every other FG is black and white.

    Really Nice! I've been thinking of making a family tree quilt for a long time . Can I ask where you found the tree pattern? I've come up with a few, but no real patterns out there . Figure I'm on my own.

    This is not a "real" family tree, we're just going to sign our names along the trunk and branches. There is a better close up of the tree on Pg 5 of the Boomerang Swap. April is using it, too. (I copied.)

    I got the panel from Hancocks of Paducah.

    That turned out beautiful and I love the idea of having everyone sign it. I like how you put the blocks around the center and then did the flying geese. What a nice keepsake!

    Beautiful, I like the way you have picked out the colours from the tree in the middle, to use in the outer boarders etc, very effective, the colours you have chosen are really pretty! Lucky girl!

    That's wonderful, MJ! What a great idea for how to use the Quilting Bee swap blocks! I love the geese as the outer border picking up the colors from the panel. Very nice!

    It makes it that much more special for me that my friends helped me make the quilt. That's what a Quilting Bee is about.

    Thank you for making my niece a family heirloom.

    Hugs,
    Mary Jane
