MY sister -in-law died not quiet a year ago ,the family ask me to make a quilt from the dresses she wore, at first they only brought me the small prints and not very many so I thought a string quilt would be the best for that kind of fabric, later I asked for some solid and they gave me the ones you see in the quilt. I had it machine quilted but the lady did not do a great job, but then she did not charge a great deal either, I got sick while working on it, but it is finished now will get it to the family soon.(The black shames are mine just to help the picture look better)

what a lovely and wonderful thought, and a very special memory quilt , I love the idea the family asked to make this from her favorite dresses. I never would have thought of that, beautiful.

You did a good job.I really like the small prints and the quilting looks fine to me.... My daughter had posted the quilts I made all the guys for Christmas, on her Facebook page. Also stating in the post, her mom did not do this for the public, I was just doing it for family. Then a young lady commented would I make a memory quilt for her?!...Makes one think, do they ever READ the post or just look at photos.

I think maybe they just skim through the post like you said looking at the photos.
