Memories Quilt
This latest quilt I have just finished putting the top together, is what makes a photo quilt special.

We all have old photo's of ourselves, Mom & Dad, Grandparents. This quilt made as a Christmas gift for a parent, has all those elements set into it.

The black & white photo's really transfer so well to the fabric sheets. I'm thinking I will have to make one for myself, put together with photo's from all my travels.

Whoa, once again, a gorgeous piece of work. I have no idea where you get your ideas, or how you make these quilts so quickly! Someone is going to be really happy and very touched by this gift!

I get my patterns from magazines & books, when I see a pattern I like I save it. I'm always on the look out for patterns that will carry photo's.

Really for me putting the top's together is the easy part, once I have the pattern & fabric's sorted I'm away.

If I'm not making it for someone else, I'm afraid they sit sometimes for a year or more before I totaly finish them. I have 3 waiting to be finished right now.

unlike the quilt it's snaggable.
