That is such a neat idea!  I was looking for a father's day gift for my dad this summer, and I thought about making a quilt for my parent's cabin in the woods, but one with photos of the fam would really be cool! 

Thanks for sharing!!!


BTW, for those looking to do this yourself, you can use photo transfer paper for the pictures.  I've done it with smaller items and its pretty in expensive for a small project.  You print an image onto a piece of iron-on transfer paper, and then use your iron to transfer the image to white material.  I typically use a white twin bedsheet for the fabric.

i think for quilts the better way to go is printable fabric if you want to wash it.

What do you mean by printable fabric?  Is that fabric you print directly onto?  Can you do that from a home printer or a store?  If a store, where?

Last time I was at office max, they had printable fabric sheets (close to the t-shirt transfer paper).  I think they would hold up better than the transfers, too, just because of my personal experience with t-shirt transfers (they look good at first, but after a while (let's say 20-30 washings, at a guess) it starts to peel off). 

Great quilt, by the way. I'm not detail oriented enough to make quilts (my corners never meet up properly), but it sounds like a great project!
