I love it when my friends contact me with ideas. My friend Keren's father is turning 80 next month and she had the idea of a blanket with all the descendants names on it. After a little experimentation with my machine, and a few emails back and forth, we decided on a family tree panel. Keren bought a light quilt from the store, and I sewed the panel on after her approval. It looks amazing. A linen machine embroidered panel on a dark brown sateen blanket.
