What materials did you use? This quilt includes 7 generations of memories in the pictures and stories, over the 80 years of my mothers life. I used Batik materials in the bright colors so she could use it on the bed durning spring and summer. My mother has always used basic and traditional fabrics and colors, so this will be a change for her. I think she will really like the combination of the pictures on the white blocks with the bright colors.

What are you most proud of? I did feather quilting for the first time on this quit. Didn't turn out to bad. I still have lots to learn with the free motion quilting , but with every quitl, I get better. It is so fun to see the finished project.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't wiat for the last minute to start a project like this. Gathering the pictures and getting them printed out took alot of time. I might have gotten caught up in the memories and stories that came with the pictures, therefore it taking longer than it should of. A project worth the time. Have Fun with it.
