What are you most proud of? the fact that i was able to get pictures of all the kids, grandkids and great grandkids and put it all together

What advice would you give someone starting this project? get all the pictures you want to use together and create the collages first as that is the hardest part of the whole project, and always print a test picture before using the transfer paper as it is expensive ( I wasted alot before I started doing test pages to make sure i like the way they came out)

Great memory quilt. My first quilt was one for my parents 50th anniv. I made plain blocks and took several permanent fabric pens to the open house and had guests sign the quilt. For those that lived far away or couldn't attend I signed their names. They used the quilt on their bed ever since. My mom passed away last Dec. and they would have been married 65 years in Mar. My dad still has the quilt on his bed. They loved to look at it and read the names, especially of those friends and family that have passed during the years since the quilt was made. Didn't think I made the quilt well, but when looking at the quilt and reading the names I don't even notice the corners that do not meet or the crooked sewing.
