    Family tree quilt done

    My mom asked me to make a quilt for a raffle to help pay family reunion costs, she’s been gone 17 years but I did it! Name:  BFEFFA2E-26E3-4CC9-9A66-0064CD7B0E70.jpeg

    For some reason I can’t post the finished quilt, but this gives you the idea!

    Just to be clear...it is a Anitagoodesign embroidery quilt. I could never do this by hand! It was still a lot of work and time but I didn’t want anyone thinking I’m a hand embroider person! Thanks for the compliments tho!

    Oh how I wish we could see the finished quilt!!! Is this Anita Goodesigns embroidery? I wanted the disc to make mine on our 50th anniversary but could not justify spending $100 for the CD. I've only seen one other with these designs. A lady I am acquainted with received one from her sister, in another state. It was the first one I'd seen and I fell in love with it, it was so bright and colorful. Very nice job you've done, even if it took years.

    I did did work on it for months...wanted to quit more than once! It is Anitagoodesign, you won’t believe this but I found it on sale at a JoAnns here in Michigan that has a Viking store in it that was closing. I paid only $19.99 for the cd! I wanted it for a long time and just couldn’t pay full price either!
