This is a quilt top that I designed using my Great-Great Grandmother, Jennie Elizabeth Connelly's Tree of Life Quilt.I was unable to locate a pattern that was identical to it, and I wanted to duplicate it for my children and grandchildren so they could have a quilt that was similar to one made by their ancestor. I am always amazed at the work and fabric that is in older quilt tops. It was a challenge to design the pattern into one that could be consistently repeated, but with time, lots of graph paper, and help from other quilters, it was a success.
The following pictures are examples of some of the work I have done. I strive to make sure the stitching on the back is as neat as the top. The t-shirt quilts are some I put together and completed as well.
