    I have finally finished this Memory quilt for my daughter. It includes fabrics from her grandparent's and children's clothing as well as photos of each of them. I have truly appreciated all the help from board members along the way. The borders and prairie points resulted from your suggestions. NOW I am very afraid to wash it , but have gleened all the information from this site and plan to bite the bullet and go for it. Thanks to everyone who helped with this process. It was my first photo quilt, my first QAYG, and my first time putting on prairie points. Couldn't have done it without all of your advice and encouragement!! :lol:
