I cut out all the photos, ironed them onto the fabrics and sewed all 18 of them onto the quilt. I also did a monogram, my first time ever doing an applique! Turned out good in my opinion, for a novice.
I also printed out all the quotes onto iron-on transfer paper, then ironed them onto various light colored fabrics. Overall there's 2 quotes of each: mother, sister and Scripture on strength.
I was even able to start a corner of the quilt tonight, so far so good. It's turning out beautiful!
