Researching one's own family history can be an intriguing experience. Naturally, I figured the next step would be to preserve this unique story in a quilt. Wouldn't this make a terrific gift for someone special? When I didn't find a design that struck my interest; I figured it was time to jump in and make my own version. My inspiration came from my sister and after creating the first design in 2006; was able to add a second design this year for her -- celebrating her love of genealogy research. Both designs are now available as downloadable patterns in my Craftsy store. Appliqued Family Tree Quilt with Climbing Flowers (Design One) Growing up, a fond memory were the beautiful flower gardens that our families loved, and so that was my inspiration for choosing them to use as the main feature on the tree. The leaves on the vines provide the name labels and the gardening accessories are cut from printed fabric. This design uses the fused machine applique technique and the product PhotoFabric(tm) for printing out the name information. This PDF pattern has colored illustrations, clear instructions, and full-size templates for the applique pieces that have already been reversed for the fusible applique process. Use my fabric choices as your guide and have fun with this project. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY If you know how to sew a straight line using a sewing machine, you can quilt. There are many simple methods to create complex looking designs. All you need is to learn the techniques to create them. For machine applique, you learn to use fusible web and fancier stitches, such as the zigzag and buttonhole stitches to finish the raw edge technique. This design also uses the product: PhotoFabric(tm) for printing out the labels. If you are uncertain about fused machine applique, as a fun technique to add to your quilting repertoire; try it with either of my free patterns: [Sweet Roses-size: 23" x 23" or My Pod-size: 9" x 7"] SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Wall-hanging quilt - finished size: 27 1/4" x 30 1/4"

Sewing began my 'adventure with fabric' in seventh grade. Fast forward about three decades, and it was machine applique that won my attention. Presently, I like to blend applique with scrap quilting techniques; and share my e-patterns here. I do still love new fabrics; however, am on a quest to turn my fabric stash into scrappy quilts. Visit me at my website or blog to find out more. My primary goal for 2015 is to not buy any new fabric; only allowing myself to spend on classes, books, and patterns.
