"60th Anniversary Quilt" by Mom

I made this quilt for my Mother & Father-in-law for their 60th Anniversary. I  raided their photo stash,  scanned them  into my computer and printed them out on fabric. This was my first quilt using photo prints. I combined different techniques to come up with the looks I wanted. On the top and bottom I printed on fabric to create a banner and on the sides I used a stencil and fabric paint. On the 4 corners I used gold bias to create the double rings. I had to get creative as I went to put the different block sizes together since I didn't have a final plan in place when I started.

What a fantastic anniversary quilt.  It will be a family heirloom for sure.  I love the way you incorporated the pictures, with different quilt blocks, trim, the gold wedding rings.  Had it been all planned from the  beginning, it wouldn't look near so nice.

Wow.  Beautiful quilt.  I love the way you also used newspaper clippings and the golden wedding rings just complete the quilt.  You did a fantastic job.

Wow, what a beautiful family heirloom for your parents and congrats on their 60 year together!!  My parents 60th is coming up in two years so maybe if I get started now and my siblings co-operate in getting requested offerings of photos and such from them, I can have one done that I've been planning for my parents.  I love your borders and the double golden rings in the corners!!

Beautiful!!! My parents celebrated their 60th anniversary 2 1/2 years ago and I have been saying for several years that I need to make a quilt for them.  My mom died on Dec. 15, 2009 and I never got the quilt done.  (It has been started in my mind many times.)   My dad is still living at the age of nearly 88 years so I should get busy and make a quilt as a tribute to my parents and a family heirloom to pass down to grand and great grand family members.   Thanks for the inspiration by sharing your successful project.

Wow, what a beautiful idea!  How do you print on fabric?  I didn't know that it was possible.  My parents will be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary in November and this is a really nice project to do for them.
