    I just wanted to share this photo of a photo memory quilt my mom and I made for my grandma's 50th wedding anniversary. It is an Ohio Star pattern. The center of each star is photos of everyone in the family. It turned out to be quite large and only a portion of it would fit in the picture.

    What a lovely gift. It looks as though she has a large wonderful family. I predict it will be the most saught after item in your grandmother's estate when the time comes.

    I made a wallhanging for each of my brother' after both of my parents passed that included photo transfers of each of my grandparents wedding pictures and each of the four of us and our spouses on our wedding days. As the only daughter I payed a whole lot more attention to family history than my brothers.

    What a wonderful time you and your Mom must have had working on it together.

    That's a great quilt. Your Grandma will treasure it! As it gets handed down, I'm sure everyone in line will treasure it also! Beautiful job!
