    This is one that I did for a dear friend of ours who lost his dog after 13 years. (He never married and had no children so Saby was his child LOL) I made this when I first started quilting. I purchased the photo package at Wal Mart and it had instructions in the package. Good Luck

    This picture was taken before I quilted it. I just did meander and didn't quilt on the photos

    One is of a 3D shoot my guys went on, the second was made for a couple the host and teach the 4-H archery in our area, and the 3rd was for my folks 50th anniversary using border fabrics.

    oh my gosh that is a very nice thing for you to do for him. Dogs can be your children. I agree with that. I tell people I have 2.5 kids (because the dog is so tiny I call her the .5 child) lol :)

    the other day someone posted a quilt of a baby in many photos that were all placed in n"film strips". It was wonderful and very original. Maybe she will read this and resend...or check your blog postings for the last week for it.

    How about something like this? I sewed vinyl to it & you can change out the pics.

    You might want to use a signature block. There are several sites that I use to get pattern ideas. Here is one. You might want to bookmark it for future projects.
