50th Wedding Anniversary Quilt

My son in laws grandparents are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary this weekend. 


The pictures are so stinkin' cute I can hardly stand it!


Such fun memories!


The fabrics are all from Riley Blake. 


The kids will be presenting the quilt to their parents at a special retreat this weekend. 


I sure hope they like it!


49" x 50"

To print the pictures, you will need "Sew in" printable fabric, a high quality ink jet printer and high resolution/quality pictures.  The pictures MUST be very high quality or you wont get a good result.  For the printable fabric, that I prefer is Printed Treasures by Dritz.  You can find it at JoAnn Fabric or HERE on Amazon.com.  Please follow the manufactures instructions exactly.  There are other, less expensive options, but this one is the most fabric like and it's the softest ;)

  5. I walked into the reception hall the day of my wedding and I almost cried. The staff was so attentive to me and my guests. Everyone said they felt like royalty.
