Default Ideas for memory quilt?

Good morning! I'm off to work, but just thought I would ask this question first. I have been asked to make a memory quilt for a coworkers daughter that just grad from college. I have a few ideas for a pattern, but would love some better suggestions. The mom wants to use photos and maybe some fabric from favorite old clothes.

My daughter made this quilt for me using Andrea T. Funk's "How to Make a Too Cool T-shirt Quilt".

Thanks for your ideas. I will look up Andrea and see what I find. My avatar is a memory quilt for the 50th anniv of our family cottage, but I need a new idea...
