What are you most proud of? The entire project! Locating and choosing photographs that would make my mom smile. The whole project was a challenge of my skills using photo editing software, getting the photos to print well, and piecing the quilt top. This quilt was a Christmas present for my Mom in 2010. The last names of all of the family members are quilted into the border of the quilt. I also wrote a poem for my Mom and used it on the label on the back of the quilt.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be prepared to devote a lot of time to this project and don't try to rush through it.

This would be so great to make for my mom (in nursing home). She'd always have her family with her. How was it done?

This is so beautiful - what a brilliant idea. I made my 'memory' quilt with my late husbands ties.

the easiest way to print the photos onto fabric is scan the scans and load them onto your computer, print from your computer onto the special fabric (should be able to get from most craft shops) and then sew onto base fabric. Hope this works as it did for me.

What material are the photos imprinted on? I can't tell if you put a plastic cover over the pictures.

The photos were printed on my inkjet printer using Printed Treasures prepared cotton fabric. Printed Treasures comes in 8.5" x 11" rectangles and can be purchased at craft stores like JoAnn, or on line from Amazon.
