I've started adding the names of the women in my ancestry to the plain off-white squares of the quilt top.
(click on the photos to enlarge it)
I started with myself, my Mom and my 2 grandmothers in the 4 center squares as seen above.
Then I just started branching out in no set pattern.
I experimented with printing and cursive styles before I did any on the quilt top and settled on my usual printing with my more cursive capital letters. I rather like the inconsistencies.
I'm about halfway done with the squares. As you can see, my ancestors are from all over the place. Great Aunt Sallie Greer is the only woman that is not a direct line, she was my great grandmother's sister who never married and I have a quilt top she made from feed sacks that is more holes than not.
I'm hoping to have the names part done by next week.
