I have been working on this memory quilt for my MIL's 80th Birthday for months. It's one of those projects that just did not want to be made, as anything that could have gone wrong with it, did.

I am not entirely happy with it, the printable fabric has really bubbled and you couldn't quilt over it so that has made it more noticeable, I had to use 2 different types of printable fabric (long story LOL) and the EQ brand seem to be worse than the Premium Brand fabric available here in Australia. DH picked most of the fabrics.
I hope my Mother in law likes it.
The other is a tablerunner I made for my mother, she wanted stars and a particular size, she loved it.
