Tuesday Archives #57: Photo Quilts

Welcome to the linky party that rejuvenates your old quilting/sewing posts!

Val's Quilting Studio
This week's theme is: Photo Quilts
Photo quilts are a different way of displaying your favorite family photos. This quilt was created for a special mom by all of her children. Each child contributed their favorite family photos, which included vacation trips, weddings, grandchildren, and other memorable events.

A fabric ‘frame’ was created around each photo and then the squares were assembled. 

The border of the quilt was embroidered with a favorite family 
saying and the names of children and grandchildren.

  6. Oooh, blast from the past indeed! I never made one per se; however, I did incorporate photos into the labels on two very special quilts, one for my great-aunt's 90th birthday (pic of her at 16 in 1928, and on her 90th in 2002), and the other for my parents' 40th anniversary, with a pic of them on their wedding day in 1959, and in 1999. I will have to look for photos! Thank you for putting my blog on your sidebar!
