It is Quilt Block Mania Time again. This months theme is connections.
We designed this tree of life to show the interconnections of the world. My day job is a a geologist, but really I do historical research of water use in my area. One property at a time. I do a report over to the north of the valley and I run across the post master general signing the paper work. A couple years later I am doing another report on a property in the southern part of the valley and the same guy owned that property and was a conductor on the railroad 10 years prior to becoming the post master general. I have numerous properties that have been owned by the same family for 200 years. In a property I just wrote about a good friend of mine is the great niece of the owner who owned the property 60 years ago. Every one talks about 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon. Every one is connected. It is very true in Albuquerque It is a city that masquerades as a big small town. In meeting I have the first 20 minutes are spent figuring out who we all know in common and how we know them. It is a microcosm of how small a world we live in.
This months pattern is entirely applique. It is designed using fusible web applique and comes with svg files if you have a cutting machine.
