    I used EQ Printables and followed the instructions letting the ink dry for 15 minutes, peel off plastic backing and the soak in water for 10 minutes. I did quilt in the ditch around the picture blocks.

    Great quilt! Definitely worth stealing. How many times before it reaches the final owner?

    Glad to see it was 2 times (didn't read everything right away), because I could see it going around a lot. Lucky couple!

    There is a lot of time and effort in that lovely quilt. That is a family heirloom for many generations to come.

    Did you have a pattern? We took three of our grandkids on a vacation this past summer and I have hundreds of photos and have been looking for a pattern in which to use them in a quilt. Would love to have this pattern.

    It's a simple log cabin and I use Electric Quilt to come up with block placement. I got a new computer a couple of months ago and I just checked, didn't bring over any of my Electric Quilt files, GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.
