    Several months ago I showed some photos of a memory quilt I was making for GS and GDIL using their photos and also I gave information on how to make these photos permanent, well I finally finished the top. Haven't quilted it yet, but here are the photos of finished top.The strips are straight but the way I hung it to take the photos of the quilt makes them look crooked. These photos will not WASH OUT EVER. It has taken me a long time to get this far with the quilt because my husband had to have a total hip replacement and had some complications following the surgery. Then school got out and I keep 2 grandchildren (7 & 9). It has been a tough few months am hoping things slow down and I can get the quilt quilted. If I were to redesign this top I would not have made th W under the photos like I did. The S in the L top corner is GDIL first initial and the C in R top corner is GS first initial and the W under the photos is First last name initial. AS a matter of fact there are several things I would change, but I love how the photos turned out.

    Your quilt is just beautiful. I understand that you want to take out the letters and if they are not fused on then, as long as you have more of that fabric left you should be able to remove it. Fusing, not sure about that but either way, I am sure it will turn out great. I have to learn how to fuse pix to fabric, that is a challenge for me. Hope to see it again, completely done.

    she didn't say she wanted to take the letters off- she said if she were to re=design this quilt-make it again she would leave the bottom one off- or do it differently...

    I believe if you click on search at the top pf the message board then put in the name of the subject or the posters name and click search it will bring up the post for that subject or that person. That is what I have done to find what I was searching for. I tried to pm you all the information and hope you got it, but it was rather long. I have some other quilts I am foinf to post later. Thank all of you for the kind words. Judy (gammieju)
