I wanted to do a special memory quilt for my parents. I found a quilt that used the rings in the center and the rest just took shape from there. I had a picture of each of them as a small child, their wedding photo and a picture taken in the late 1990's. I also had family pictures of the 5 of us as we were growing up, and "conned" my Dad into sending me copies of the pictures that they had of us as infants. I got family pictures from the other four siblings and was able to arrange them around the outer area in order of birth. I started at the left upper corner with me, then went on around clockwise. It was a great surprise for them and my 92 year old mother still has it hanging in her room.

Barbara, this is great. It sure is one that will be cherished forever.

How did you add the pictures to the quilt?

Thanks.

The pictures were professionally applied to the fabric, much like logos on t-shirts. There is a business in a town not far from ours that does it. Much easier than my trying to do it at home.
