Sister Photo Memory Quilts

 These two t-shirt quilts are great. The lady I made them for was by far the most organized person I have worked with. She had all the clothes she wanted to use, and she had pictures of her daughters printed onto fabric for me to sew on. It was awesome!

Because of how organized she was, or maybe because I am getting close to my moving date, I really worked hard to get these quilts done for her. This purple one was easy. She did not have a lot of clothes for her oldest daughter - who is 17 - she we filled in with purple fabric. On those purple squares I sewed the fabric photos on. It was fast and cute. I sewed them on with a simple zig-zag stitch.
I wish I would have taken a picture of the back because I pieced two baby blankets and then did a purple border. Anyway, just imagine a super cute back! 

Her other daughter - who is 5 - she had a lot of clothes for. Because of this and because of the different sizes of logos and print we did less of a squares sewn together quilt and more of a puzzle one. At least it was a puzzle for me to try and figure out how to place everything so that it fit. It worked pretty well, except we are not quite square. But she was okay with that thank goodness!
She had two sheets that her daughter used and I used those for the pictures on this quilt - and for the fill in where I did not have clothes that would fit a certain spot. I sewed these pictures on with pink thread because it was sort of a theme here and I had some that matched perfectly! I also used one of the sheets for a border. I personally like a border because I feel like it pulls it all together.
I just love this picture here. If you cannot see it, the little girl is kissing her mom's pregnant belly. I sewed this one onto the outfit that she is wearing in the picture. It is just precious.

These two quilts were fun because of the huge gap in the age of the girls. It was great to see clothes from recent and then clothes from a while ago. The different trends and colors we put kids in now verses then is pretty drastic! 

I hope that you all have a fabulous weekend! I will be cleaning out more for the move!
