Treasures of Your Life - a Finished Quilt

The last quilt of the year, and it’s a gorgeous memory for a sibling! Not mine, but a friend of my parents’. I know the friends, but not the sibling. But after resizing 90+ family photos, I’m pretty sure I know the sibling pretty well by now!

The client contacted me fairly soon after I finished Worked for Success - when I learned to print documents and photos on Spoonflower fabric. So I was able to say YES immediately, because I knew how to do this!

92 photos! I split them in folders, horizontal and vertical, and resized them so they would come out approximately 7” on the longest side. Then everything was set with a 1” strip in between and 2” sashing strips. I measured and added some wider strips on the tops and bottoms of some rows so they all came out the same length. That made it extra collage-y!

The vast majority of the pictures printed exceptionally well on fabric. The pinkish one on the lower right hand size was even a picture of a scrapbook page, and it came out great!

The backing is QT Harmony Crocus and the sashing/binding, which you’ve seen before, is Dance of the Dragonflies by Kanvas. And I ordered enough to use it in yet another set of quilts coming up, so I hope you like this purple! (The sibling does, obviously. I even ordered a hibiscus shade of quilting thread.)

This was a really fun memory quilt to be a part of - and just goes to show, not all memories are t-shirts!
