    Hi, I haven't posted before my SIL from PA finally send me photos of a "photo album quilt" I made for GD when she graduated from high school about 6 years ago. I made it just over 2 weeks because she finally came up with the best gift for her GD from her. It has photos of her from age 2 through graduation, a picture of her GM, her mom and her and also a photo her and her BFF's.

    This will be a quilt to cherish! Wonderful job and love how the blue seems to "pop" next to the pink.

    Thank you for all the wonderful comments. Thought I'd add that that this quilt has been to Germany and back. It's travelled further me. Bethany's husband is in the service and they are stationed over there. She took the quilt with her, came back this summer a visit and brought it home with her. Gave to to GM Pat my SIL and pat emailed the photo to share with my quilt group.

    Very great colors & pattern. I'm amazed how that can be transferred to fabric.

    Thank You.....If you want to make one of these....There is "SPEICAL SHEETS of this fabric to work with your computer" to transfer photos". It specific for this. I did black and white but you can use color. I made another smaller one for another step GD (we had every Tuesday since her Mother went back to work) about 4 years ago. She uses it regularly and it's still going strong.

    I love memory quilts and yours is beautiful. I made one for each of my three sons. One got his on his bd (because his bd was in Oct. and I couldn't wait... hehe) and the other two get theirs on Christmas. I hope they like them as much as I liked making them. You really did a nice job on yours! :thumbup:
