Family Tree Quilt

In 2006 before I had a blog!
I made this quilt for our very good friends David & Jane
Made from twelve 'nine-patch' squares and thirteen plain squares.
The four corners are hand quilted ~
Jane has two tortoises, she loves Snowmen, collects Rocking Horses and has a Horse call Shiloe

Nine of the squares are hand quilted with Hearts.
These three show dates of birth of Jane and David and their son Alan
The wedding dates of David and Jane and their son Alan and DIL Annabel (I have just filled this heart today)
The dates of birth of their two grandchildren, Thomas and Erin (which I also added today)
One Heart has their Surname and the other is blank awaiting to be stitched sometime!

This quilt looks odd because of the way it is quilted.  Only the plain squares are quilted.

    Love from Mum
