    Currently Im sewing names on this family quilt. Each Sam and Sue has a family members name on it, dating back for about 4 generations. This has been a work in progress for about 10 years, and I only have 2 more names to put on, then it is finished !
    It is completely made by hand.

    This was a beginners quilt for me, it's not perfect, but Im proud

    Yes, future generations will only have to look in our genealogy booklet I wrote to know who everyone is on it.
