Making a Memory Quilt?

Would it be possible to make a memory quilt from a purchased duvet cover or comforter? Could you iron photos/printed transfers directly onto one? I thought this would be easy for someone who doesn't sew/quilt. You could use fabric paints to decorate around the photos?

This seems like a pretty big project to tackle and would be difficult to "undo" if mistakes were made.

  • I feel sure what you have suggested can be done but why not try something smaller so you can have a "trial & error" piece to work on?
  • Maybe you could find something smaller - baby quilt, pillow sham, or just a thick piece of fabric to try your art on.
  • The practice fabric piece would not even have to be solid for you to get an idea of what you want to do.

  • Most of your supplies can be purchased at a local fabric or craft store (Jo Ann's, Michael's) and they may have a lot of good suggestions on how to proceed.

I think this would be possible. Just make sure you have washing instructions
