    I finally got this quilt done for my boss of 23 years. She is retiring next month and made her my version of a memory quilt. I sure was a nervous wreck making this - started over twice before I was happy with it.

    She will love it, especially since you have the pictures much more personal.

    Excellent! I love the photos, dates, and colors too! Nice.
    The prairie points are a great touch!

    lovely!
    I really like the way you used these materials.
    I am in the process of quilting a log cabin in the same materials.
    It is very pretty :thumbup:

    I bought some of the same fabric that you used in your quilt.

    The colors are so pretty together - it's definitely something that she could never buy. Great job.

    What a great idea, I'm sure your retiring boss will just love the quilt with all the pictures. Such a memory.
