    A year ago I promised to make a quilt for my daughter-in-law's mother, whose mother had recently passed away. Finished it just in time for this Christmas. I used photos and pieces of fabric from her clothes as the centers of the log cabin squares. Pretty pleased with it overall. My FMQing is not the greatest but it was done with love. I quilted a heart around each of the centers and meandered the rest (except for the borders, which has a heart pattern).

    The recipient seemed to really appreciate it (as did her sisters).

    I have a question. How do the fabric pictures hold up after washing? I also included fabric pictures on my grandson's quilt label and also had a picture on a pillow to match. Just wondering.
