Mary Grace McNamara said...

Oooooh! I do! I am just now in the middle of putting together a retirement gift quilt for a woman who has worked with all the early childhood education programs in our city for a very long time. Each of the programs decorated one block and some of them used something like this photo printing for their blocks. It's started me thinking how many different ways that could be used. What a great prize this would be to win!

Thanks for the chance!

This sounds like such a cool idea! My mom wants me to make her a quilt and a photo quilt would make her day!

Melissa Stramel said...

So I made one of these for my son's second birthday. He's now 6, so technology has probably come a long way. This could be a blog post, I'm thinking. Anyway he threw up on it and then I washed it, not realizing you're never supposed to wash them with soap. So now he has this beautiful quilt with lots of interesting white blocks where there used to be photos! I could use some professional printing.

Rene' said...

I would love them! I made a quilt for my grandmother's 90th birthday that incorporated fabrics from our family reunions. I'm going to check out Connecting Quilts now. So hard to find quality photo printing on fabric. Thanks for the giveaway.

Love it! I actually bought some cotton for printing on about 3 years ago, and it's still sitting on the shelf in my room-I just don't have a good enough printer, this would be just the thing-and maybe I could tell my husband I finally printed the pictures? He'd never know the difference...

I was just talking to my best friend about making one of these for my Mom's bday...she had made one herself and when it got washed all of the ink from the photos ran. This would be perfect to use on it instead of trying to do it myself!!!

Charlene said...

I hope I'm not too late! I was searching for how to make 2 photo quilts for my daughter's 2 best friends. They are both having a difficult time with her sudden death 7 mos. ago. I had the idea to make them quilts with pictures of themselves and Ashley. This would be perfect. I hope to finish them in time for the 1 yr anniversary on Sept. 18th. I love the quality and colorfastness of what Connecting Threads has to offer. This would help with the cost.

Renee said...

count me in Rachel! What a great giveaway!

ejvannatta said...

Our quilt guild just had a speaker on photo quilts and this would be the perfect chance to get a head start on my own photo quilt!

Jessa said...

This is perfect timing. I am getting ready to make a quilt for a family who recently lost their mother to cancer. I am using her clothing in the quilt and wanted to include some special photos of her and her kids and husband. This would be such a blessing.
