Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Here is one I did for my hubby's 60th BD. starting with his early pics , university, meeting me, our kids, daughter's wedding, and a few professional shots (he is a musical conductor/composer). Sorry I cut off the bottom of the photo-it is balanced with a full photo and a bit of red and black border so it is finished.
Because this was going on the wall I wanted the photos on point like a scattering of photos for visual interest. (This is sooo easy to do--just make a huge border around the block then slap your square up ruler on it and twist it a bit.) I also took some creme fabric and printed out favorite sayings from his life and appliqued them on. And a little red for interest. Had all the guests to his party sign the back.

Where can I buy this book? I am new to quilting. I need to make one for a Lady who was a member of our Volunteer Fire Department, she lost everything when her house burned. She retired just last year she is 82 years old and was given a memory quilt by the fire dept which was destroyed in the fire, she lost everything. I am giving her a house warming soon when she moves into her new home, and wish to make her the memory quilt again. Can you help me?
My DD used Andrea T. Funk's "How to Make a Too-Cool T=Shirt Quilt" to make mine. She got it from Amazon. An earlier poster said it was available from the author's website also.
thank you so much! I am new to this board and took me 3 hours to find this blog. BUT, I got side tracked reading all of the posts. I will remember to bookmark it this time lol I learn more here than I have from quilting classes I love this board.
Hi!! I have made a memory quilt before but it was from a pattern. Does anybody know of a site that has patterns to download for making memory quilts? Thanks!
