    Hello everyone,
    I have never posted a picture before, so I hope this one will work. I have always made memory quilts for all my DGC. My Granddaughter, Ali, wanted hers in her school colors. So, as you can see, this one is in black and gold.

    My sister, Cathy Wright, quilted it for her on her HQ Avante.

    Oh it's a beautiful quilt. She will love it even more because you did her school colors like she requested!

    That is a beautiful quilt, both the piecing and the quilting. I made an autograph quilt for my DD's graduation this year and she really loved it. I'm sure your DGD is going to love and cherish this quilt forever. Thanks for sharing it with us.

    I must say I'm not a big fan of picture quilts but that one really caught my eye. The colors and pattern, just everything about it is wonderful. You've changed my mind about putting pictures on quilts. Love it!
