Q&A with daisyboo9

SuzHickey asked:
This is incredible. I thought it was so beautifully done and then I saw the photos on the border! An amazing piece of family history.
daisyboo9 answered:
Thank you so much, it is the perfect way to hold family close!
patz in suffolk asked:
This is absolutely spectacular! It was only after I'd looked at and admired the quilting and applique and had shown it to my husband that I suddenly noticed the photographs! What a wonderful and unique gift! And how on earth did you do the "Family" and "Friends" words? Not applique, surely?
daisyboo9 answered:
thank you so much. I embroidered the words using a satin stitch with perle cotton 12 wt. It was the first time I had done the photos and was really pleased how easy it was to do. Just make sure that your photos are a high resolution otherwise they come out a bit blurry.
