    Question memory quilt

    My gandaughter is the Maid of Honor in Aug. She asked me to make a memory wall hanging or lap quilt for the bride and groom. I know the process for printing the pictures. However, I would like a pattern for the project. I knew if I posted on Quilting Board someone would know of a good pattern for the project.
    Thanks in advance for your help.

    I don't know of any special patterns for using with picture blocks. I think most people just pick a quilt block they like and do it in the wedding colours along with the picture blocks. You might like to look at some paper pieced sites for wedding objects? I've seen some awesome PP bride and groom blocks. Maybe something like that in the center, then your photo blocks and pieced blocks around them. I did see one quilt where they put the photos in the center portion of a Double Wedding Ring quilt but that might be more than you want to tackle.

    When I made mine I just printed the pic and then framed the pics with fabric , sashed the blocks into rows and added borders - you can do anything you like
    To keep your mind fresh- learn one new thing a day !
