    Hayley's Quilt

    This is a commission quilt for Hayley's 8th birthday. On the back is a family tree and I have appliqued 36 names onto it, plus a couple of blanks for babies due in the coming months.

    It was part of the LQS's 'Pink Week for Breast Cancer' recently and received lots of positive comments and I could have had quite a few more commissions for 'family tree quilts'

    Cool quilt. I also like the family tree idea. Not sure I've ever seen the pattern for the front, unique!

    I drew the tree up from a picture, added a few branches to fit the names per family on a branch. I stem-stitched the names onto the 'leaves' first, light for female, dark for male. Buttonholed stitched the tree to the background, then buttonholed stitched each leaf in place on the branches.

    I actually enjoyed doing the family tree and the recipient's family is thrilled with it so I have achieved what they wanted

    That's a fun, funky quilt for a young lady. The family tree is a great idea for a back. Nicely done!

    Love it - Can you direct me to the pattern for the front. I think that it is a D9P with the middle wonky.

    Great work. I am sure that it will cherished forever.
