Has anyone ever had one of these made before? Or does anyone know HOW to make one? I would really like to do one of these for my mother in law and my mom for Christmas this year but everywhere I look on the internet they are like $200-$300! If I knew how to quilt I would totally do it myself but I'm just not that talented.. lol Any suggestions?

My friend makes them, but she charges a fair bit too. Quilts are very expensive due to the time and effort required to make them.

I wish I could quilt. It's a skill I want.

I posted on the same subject a couple of months ago. One of the mommies in this group makes them, but I can't remember who. I will see if I can find my old post about this.

I make quilts. I make memory quilts using old clothing and also picture ones. I charge pretty fair too. Usually i have people send me the clothing and i make the quilt and mail it back.

I love making quilts.. so fun. let me know if you would want more info or anything. i have pictures of the memory ones I've done. I haven't done a picture one in awhile so i'd have to search for a picture of those.
but you can go to the fabric store and buy printable fabric sheets. You can print the picture right onto the fabric and then use it within the quilt. very easy.
I'm going to be getting an embroidery machine soon so i can start adding names/dates on the quilts. I can't wait
