Custom Tree Quilt

This Christmas I had such a great time making Stockings for so many families.  I met some great people, heard some great stories and have some great customers.  One of my customers decided to have a custom quilt commissioned for some friends of hers that are getting married this summer.  We have been throwing around ideas and have finally decided what it will be.

I will be making a custom quilt with a tree somewhat similar to my family tree except that it will have two separate trunks that will twist together to make one solid trunk and then bloom in to beautiful leaves.  It will have thier names and wedding dates on the trunk as well as their engagement date and their dating anniversary.  Along the bottom will be the words "When Two Become One".

This is the final concept sketch for the quilt, over the next few weeks I'll add pictures of the progress of the quilt so you can follow me through my process of creating one of my custom quilts.
