I drew all of these applique pieces myself (this is honest to goodness the extent of my drawing capabilities), but many of the images were inspired by pieces that I found on flickr, such as this and this.
This family tree was for my mom and step-dad.
I think my favorite part of this tree is the black batik border. Although I also love the color variations in the leaves. And the birds. OK, I can't pick a favorite part!
And this is the family tree for my in-laws:
I love that the heavy trunk of the tree leant itself to the heart "carving". And at the base of the tree, my in laws.
Again, I have so many "favorite" parts of this quilt....the shape of the tree, the cute little acorns, the border fabric.
The two trees are so different, and I love them both! I don't think I could pick a favorite if I tried.
