A Custom Family Quilt

I just finished quilting this beautiful quilt for my friends A and T.  It is a gift for their mother-in-law. They traced all of the grandkids hands, and A did the beautiful embroidery.  I am always impressed when people do things I can't.  :)  A also pieced the quilt top together. 

I did some echo quilting around the hands, and stitched in the ditch between the yellow and white squares. 

I then echo quilted around the ric rac border, and quilted the names of all of the adults in the family on the white squares.  I connected all of the names with a loopy line. 

They also had me do the binding by machine for them.  It is the same red as the backing. 

And here is a peek at the entire back. 

Thanks A and T for letting me quilt your beautiful quilt and post about it online.  :o)
