DIY Look It's Me Photo Quilt
Best Purchase ever
I brought this for a baby shower idea. Instead of painting onsies, each family painted their own tile and took a picture of that family and placed it inside of the sleeve. I will give this to my sister to put in the baby's room wall. I was pleased with the product and will definetly order again.

Fun group activity
I used this as a group project at a youth center (7th grade through high school). The teens had fun designing their own square and hamming it up for the camera (most of them anyway!). The quilt is going to look great on the wall in the center, and I'm going to buy more kits so we can continue to add on to the quilt as more teens attend the center.

An Annual Winner
I use this Photo Quilt every year for our First Communion class. Each child decorates a square and then we put their picture in it. After it is all tied together with the very colorful ribbons which are provided, we use it to decorate the altar during Mass.
Everyone in church loves seeing thier child's picture along with those of the other children.

I had purchased the photo quilt for my classroom a couple of years ago and the children and their parents loved it! This year when I received the kit I was very disappointed with the fabric. The cotton fabric has been replace with polyester, and the ribbons have been replaced with colorful cords. It is not the same product! I don't know how the paint will hold up once the children decorate their squares. Very disappointed!

I buy this quilt yearly for my students. Each student decorates a quilt square. I take pictures throughout the year. They are displayed in the quilt squares. At the end of the year the students include the pictures in their 4th grade portfolios.

I ordered this for our VBS last year and I must say the children really, really enjoyed this craft!
I ordered enough squares for all the children who registered had their own. They each decorated their own piece, and at the end of the week I inserted their photos with their names and all of the children tied their own squares together.
To this day, this quilt is still hanging up on our classroom wall. The children absolutely LOVE to see themselves when they enter, and it's a great reminder of how much fun they had. Before this years VBS we will untie the squares and allow the children to bring their own home, so we can create a new quilt and hang it up to replace the last one.

Excellent for Family Reunions
For our family reunion picnic, each family was asked to bring in an updated picture of their family. When they arrived they were referred to the table where everything was set up for them to grab a square and decorate it with the fabric markers and ribbon and insert their picture. The quilt was then gifted to the Great-Grand Parents as a memorial of the reunion!

This is great, but most classes have more than 24 children. Need to have additional squares.

This was combined with the 'Operation Cooperation' pastel quilt for a 75 year old relative's birthday. We laid the two out to form a pattern, tied them together, put pictures from the celebration in the picture squares and hung it on the wall. The relative was thrilled.
Some of the plastic sections weren't sewn on exactly straight. (The only complaint.)
