I had the opportunity to create a custom photo memory quilt blanket. My friend works for Cystic Fibrosis and wanted to give a gift to a volunteer who is moving. The volunteer had worked on their main fundraising event for twelve years. So she gathered invitations, photos, and posters from those twelve years. My daughter helped me create the photo collage in Photoshop. We tried a variety of colors for the background and arranged the photos to maximize the width.
I printed the design onto Spoonflower’s Organic Cotton Knit Ultra. I’m so pleased with this fabric quality. The colors are vivid, even after washing. I sewed the front to a sweatshirt fleece backing. The blanket is 57″ x 78″. It contains 18 images. The central image is 20″ x 15″.
If you would like me to create a custom photo memory quilt blanket for you, the process begins by contacting me. We will discuss your timing needs. You will email your photos to me. I will then create a design. Once the design is approved, I will send it off to Spoonflower where it will be printed on the organic knit fabric.
Current blanket turnarounds are running about 6 months.
