Family Tree quilt goes together



Gradually my Family Tree is coming together.


After adding a 1 1/4 inch border to every picture I was very unsure how to make all the different size photos fit together.

Chris [ usually called Mr Fixit ] suggested making them all either 6, 9, 12 or 15 inches plus the 1/2 inch for the seam allowance.

As I had been using a jelly roll I just added a strip to each side and then cut them down to various sizes.. all went together well except I had a 6 inch slot missing, so I added another photo of my in-laws wedding and I now have it ready to quilt.
