Default Family tree quilt

A co-worker couldn’t find a quilter to make a queen-sized family tree quilt for her in-law’s anniversary, so she asked if I would. I quilt but had never appliquéd, but she didn’t mind because I was the only person who was willing to try. She wanted a simple quilt with the main focus on the tree. I drafted a few designs and this is the one she liked best. I saved my tree pattern in case I ever decide to make another 4 foot appliqued tree—although I highly doubt it!

Wow - and for a co-worker too! I'd be tempted to keep that for little ol' me!

The quilt looks great, and I can see names embroidered on the leaves - You did a great job!

I had wanted to do something like this for our 50th anniversary with names on leaves too. I say I can't draw, but actually did manage a tree that did look like a tree-lol, but ended up doing something else I thought he might like. He does, so he never knew of my original idea.
You did a great job for never having appliqued. I wish I could bring it close up to see better. Great co-worker you are too!
