Mum's 70th Birthday Log Cabin Photo Quilt

by Lancia Hall
(Caloundra, Queensland, Australia)

I made this quilt for my mother for her 70th birthday in December 2016.

I thought a Log Cabin would show off the photos best and still have an excellent pattern. It is to hang in her house into a specific spot, so designing the right size photo and Log Cabin square size was a challenge.

We presented it to her at a birthday party, so the photo is not where it lives now. I put a rod pocket in the top back and bottom back for rods to keep in place. there is also a legend on the back showing thumbnails of the people with their names. So in 200 years time, people who own it then, will know what it's all about.

I printed my own photos and during the process of the quilt I was able to put all my Grandmothers slides to digital format for the family.

The photos are of My mother and her ancestors going back 3 generations and her descendants to current day.
