I'm making my first memory quilt. I have printed pictures of drawings that a little boy did. The mom asked me to make a quilt from them. I know how I want to design the quilt, but I am a little nervous. I will be paid for this quilt so I want to do it right. My first commisioned quilt - yipee!!!
My question is. I hate to ruin the child's pictures by quilting over them. Do I need to do this? The blocks w the pic range from 6" wide by about 7-8" long. Some are horizontal, some are verticle. One is even a self portrait. Of course they are all abstract, He was in kindergarten and first grade when he drew them. I am planning to put a 2 inch sashing around each block that I will either stitch in the ditch or use a decorative stitch, but don't feel this is enough to secure the sandwich with the drawings. Am I right? How do I secure the sandwich with the picture blocks? HELP!!
