An American Family* (1976-76 with later additions)
What a way to begin quilting! I became interested in both genealogy and quilting about the same time and didn’t know much about either one. Being young and foolish, I made a genealogy quilt for one of my first quilts! It isn’t the most beautiful quilt I ever made, but I always drag it out when I need to know about the ancestors. I quickly lost interest in genealogy. This quilt includes blocks for 200 people and covers a span of 16 generations. The two blocks shown represent Vernon and Minnie Lynch.
