Tanner and me
She loves it!
What materials did you use?
Fabrics and ink-jet printing fabric.
What are you most proud of?
I think it turned out awesome and Tanner did too!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I just used the pictures and sewed frames around them. Easy, fun and a wonderful history of Tanner's family!
This is perfect. My son is in the Air Force and is being transferred to England very soon. I have a family picture quilt in mind to send them for Christmas. We have a very big family as well, and I know it will take quite a bit of time to set up and complete. What type of quilting did you do around the pictures?
I sewed the frames around the pictures and then stitched in the ditch between the pics and frames. Love to see your family quilt!!
I just ditched around both the inner and the outer edges of the frames. I didn't do anything on the actual pictures. This is one of the first quilts I made, might do something different now. Glad you like it!
I have never seen this before, how creative, and very special for family memories.
Thank you. Tanner is my very special first granddaughter and it was a joy to make this for her.
how did you get the pic of fabric
For this quilt I ironed white fabric on shelf paper backing and put it through my printer. I have learned since that dark t-shirt transfers can make brighter pictures.
Looks terrific. I made a similar quilt with family pictures for my son in the Air Force.
Terrific job. I made a similar one a couple years ago for my son in the Air Force.
