Look What's Quilting -- Lois Albers 3/10/11
Lois Albers, Persia, asked us to create this photo memory quilt for her granddaughter, Katie. This is the second quilt we have made for Lois (the first was pink, for granddaughter Jordan). Katie chose turquoise and lime fabric with Avlyn Oh-So-Soft on the back. We use cotton inkjet printing sheets by Jacquard ($15.49/ten sheets) for the photos. We've tried many types of sheets, but find that the print quality is best on Jacquard (and the price is reasonable too). We quilted it with Hearts & Loops pattern in YLI monofilament thread on top and bottom. Working with monofilament can be a challenge -- it's stretchy, but the finished product is worth the trouble.
