FAMILY GATHERING TREE QUILT
Don't tell Butch!
Copyright © 2004 Christine Thresh
My brother-in-law Butch Thresh has been holding family barbeques since 1988 in the Grass Valley/Nevada City area of California. This quilt was a thank you to him for all the wonderful times that the family (and adopted family members) have enjoyed. The quilt was presented to him on July 17, 2004.
It took a lot of work to gather 61 photos (you can see them all if you really want to by scrolling down the page). The photos are on an angle because that's how they go in the block. They were printed on treated cotton fabric.
The individual blocks were done in the log cabin pattern. Many of the fabric strips were contributed by Sylvia and Toni -- two other quilters in the family.
Quilting was done by Sally Ann Smith, visiting here from New Zealand, on a
Gammill long-arm machine.
