Description

This was the first quilt I made from start to finish. I made it for my in-laws' Fiftieth Wedding Anniversary in 2005. I felt two very special people needed a very special gift. It features photos from each of their younger lives on the sides, and the center column features their life together. The back is a large floral print of Texas wildflowers, which they have always admired.

This is just beautiful! I have never worked with photos on fabric so I am totally impressed that you did this as a first quilt! The recipients must be so pleased.

This is such a wonderful gift. I have been thinking about doing one for my daughter with pictures of her children. So many thoughts, sew little time.

I love this. I am very symmetrical and this pattern is my kind of quilt. I like the clean lines. My First quilt was with pictures (63 of them) and also a 50th anniversary although I've made many blankets ( and one with pictures I made for my son last year when he lost his dog). You obviously know much more to start with than me because the quilting on top looks great! I just love the clean perfect look of this.
