Welcome to the Quilting Board!
thanks for all the suggestions and especially the pictures! that helps more than anything trying to decide a layout and style
It was a lot of fun making this quilt--brought back a lot of memories. We've been friends for 56 years. Her daughter emailed me a lot of pictures: I had more from my photo albums. I kinda themed each collage--her parents, brothers, her young; his family pictures from a child; her wedding pictures; pictures of her son and daughter individually and together and with my kids; party pictures from our misspent youth.
Go for it, Red Rover, you'll have a great time doing it.
Answered you over in the ISO area, posted some pics and link to a book.

These quilts are all wonderful! It's fun to set photos on fabric and then quilt them. I usually try to set them in eras....
Childhood photos, HS, Wedding, etc.

Oh My! All of these are great memory quilts!!
Here is my Memory quilt I did not long ago. I didn't have a pattern...the math and design was a challenge but fun too. Just finished Memory Baseball T-shirt Quilt for Grandson
Here is mine! I think.
Be the best that you can be at everything you do.
