    I'm thinking of doing a photo quilt for a friend's daughter that is graduating - looking for any feedback or tips/tricks from those that have done something like this... Any suggestions on which photo fabric to use? thanks, Trish

  • Re: Did you work on a quilt today? #3

    [quote user="Granny M"] [quote user="Margaret Weber"] I am interested in knowing if there is a better photo fabric to use. [/quote] I am kind of collecting opinions on that myself. Electric quilt co has several to choose from. I started with just the regular 200 thread count fabric...

  • Re: Photo Memory Quilt

    Hi Laurie, there has been lots of discussion on this topic. I made a photo quilt last year. I used white Kona cotton and Bubblejet set which was cheaper than buying prepared fabric sheets.

  • Re: Photo quilts

    Marge, Good tips. I did manage to keep my photos to about 4 x 4 and since I satin stitched around the perimeter, I added stabilizer to the back of each photo. The stabilizer gave each photo some durability. I was afraid they would feel too stiff but much to my surprise they didn't. I did look on...

    Hey Marge....I free hand machine quilted the stippling and meandered around the border, sashing and quilt blocks. The rest was mostly stitched in the ditch. I didn't want the quilting to overpower the pictures, which in my mind were the focal point. The quilting process is what proved the most challenging...

  • Re: Photo quilts

    Jan, I recently did a photo quilt for my Dad's 80th birthday. I've used two brands...Jacquard and June Tailor. I had good resuls with both brands. The one thing I learned is to be sure and use the same brand for all the photos. The cloth sheets from brand to brand can feel slightly different...
