John and Emily's Family Tree

I can show and tell this quilt now, this gift is now living in Alaska.   I designed this quilt for my son and his now wife.  I had been tossing around the idea of making my own.  Just so happens that Emily thought it would be wonderful, so I made it for her and John.   It was not as easy to make as I thought,  I probably spent a full 2 weeks just doing this tree.  I made a lot of mistakes, and when I put the leaves on with the names I managed to mess those up as well.  I am not sure about how I placed the family on the tree but it works for me,   I added the beads as a color coding to how they each individual is related to John or Emily and now both.
