I saw a wall hanging - a memory type quilt - it had quilt blocks, plus plastic cases for pictures. Has anyone ever seen something like that? What is it called or where may I get the pattern?
Here's one example. You could make similar, or almost any block, leaving the center plain and cover the photo area with a stitched in vinyl pocket that would allow you to insert a picture.
Joyce, what a beautiful frame and the little one is adorable..Thanks for sharing this ..Barbara
EAT!! SLEEP !! QUILT!!
What a great idea! I've wanted to make some sort of photo quilt for my 2 sons, using school pictures, but don't want to wait until Graduation to sew it together. I could do something like this and just add a picture each year.
thanks for the inspiration! I love how this place helps me solve my quilting dilemmas!
This is gorgeous. That baby is precious.
Joyce, thanks for sharing this idea. It gives me another way to do memory quilts.
Just wanted to clarify that the quilt picture I posted was an example I found online, not my creation. I found it quite inspirational as well to use for a photo quilt where you might want to swap out the photos from time to time. I think there is one of these in my future.
oh I like it joyce!!
thanks, Joyce! It is giving me some good ideas. Carol
I think I will try this for my daughters' next Christmas gifts. I'm running out of new and inspirational ideas, and I think this will fill the bill for this Christmas...maybe even for my nieces and sister (and sisters-in-law). What a great idea!
