    beautiful quilts. The photographs of the flowers make it special. Over the years, I have taken pictures of flowers grown in our garden and plan to make quilt, someday. Thanks for sharing. Eiltcoq.

    Both quilts are very nice. Love the idea of preserving memories in a quilt.

    First of all, both quilts are just gorgeous!!!! I'm wanting to make quilt blocks with my own pics as you have...... how do you transfer the pic to fabric, what do you use and where do I get it? Thanks for the info, I'm just starting to quilt and I get so much inspiration from quilters like you on this site, thank you again.

    they are both wonderful but you outdid yourself on the first one. What a wonderful way to preserve your photos.

    Edie This board allows you to do a search - top of this page, top line on right side. I have put a link at the bottom of this message (from doing this search) To do your own search, type in "photo transfer" or "fabric photos", or "transfer photos to fabric" it will give you a list of what it can find on that subject that has been posted on the board. You might also do a "google or bing search on the web and see what you can find there.

    I will tell you that I do prefer to transfer on to my own fabric - but if you prefer using "ready made" I would NOT recommend using the June Taylor brand unless you want your fabric photo stiff as a board. You can buy "prepared for dying" fabric that you can iron on to freezer paper and it does really well. If you can't find any information on the Board's search engine that makes any sense - let me know and I will try and walk you through the process or answer your questions etc.

    Your flower quilt has really inspired me. I have been saving up photos of flowers I took in our neighborhood but did not know quite what to do with them. I really like your arrangement. Thanks for posting. Lovely!!!

    Both are stunning. Your leaf quilt sounds like a good guild project.

    It was a really good project, but as I mentioned it was difficult finding a good variety of leaf patterns - perhaps there are more available now. We didn't put any limits on the techniques to use - just established the block size, and determined the predominant color that was to be used from month-to-month. If we had thought about it, guess we could have done cross-stitch leaves, embroidered leaves, crewel work leaves, ribbon embroidery, paper-pieced, used embellishments, etc.

    We were a small club of 6-8 people so that is how many blocks we made each month and everyone took one of the block made by each member. If only 6 people did blocks for a particular month, but we had made eight blocks, then we each had 2 extra of the blocks we had made. There was a wide range of fabrics used from solids, to plaids, to batiks, to small tone-on-tones and that coupled with the colors and variety of leaf patterns used from month to month made for a quilt with a lot of movement. Just really wished I had gotten pictures of the quilts done by the other members - every setting was different, and the quilting done on each was different too. They were all beautiful.

    Thanks for the compliment. Would really like to see a full sized photo of your avatar. I am "into" Baltimore Album" blocks also - just need to take some photos of the blocks that I have finished - maybe that would also give me some incentive to get back to them and at least make a small wall hanging.
