Easy Picture Quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I made this for my 15 year-old granddaughter, Haley, who plans to be an oceanographer and especially loves dolphins. I bought a pattern several years ago (don't have it now and can't remember the name) that was for a 12 inch block. I enlarged the pattern and made the wall hanging and it did turn out beautifully! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take Laura's class!

What you will need

  • Fabrics
  • heat-bonding backing

Q&A with jclinton

MegB1432 asked:
Wonderful work. Love it. May I ask where you found the pattern or class.
jclinton answered:
I found the pattern in a quilting store. I will try to find the pattern and send you the info soon.
MegB1432 asked:
Thanks so much for your response. I love your quilt not only because of its beautiful construction but because I was looking for a dolphin themed quilt that I could use as a Memorial Quilt for my son. He loved dolphins. Thanks for your efforts.
jclinton answered:
Been really busy, but still have it on my mind to find that pattern. I'm thinking the person who made it has a last name starting with Mc. McGregor? I will look soon!
MegB1432 asked:
Thanks so much for your help and locating the dolphin pattern. I love the site and the entire Coastal collection is amazing. Going to order some of the patterns right now. Did you find this difficult to make or time consuming? Thanks so much once again. I know this will help me deal with my grieving process and bring joy as well.
jclinton answered:
I found it a really fun project, and not hard at all. I made it several years ago for a granddaughter who plans to be a marine biologist. She is starting college this summer to make her dream come true. I would love to see your pictures when you get yours made.
