Beautifully done, this is a gift for my daughter. She is only 3, but she is obsessed with this quilt, and it is a great comfort to her when she goes to sleep. I just love it!

I have nothing but positive things to say about my quilt purchase from Unpretentiousmemorie! I ordered the 25-30 photo quilt for my mother for her Christmas present! Not only did I get the quilt on time but I was thrilled with the result! The whole process was extremely easy and the frequent updates I received while the quilt was being made gave me a sense of relief throughout the process! The woman whom made the quilt was incredibly kind and gracious even offering prayers for mom. Mom absolutely loved it and has displayed it with pride for all her friends and family to see! If I ever purchase another quilt it will be only from Unpretentiousmemorie!

About

Your story in one sentence.

My first photo quilt was for a family reunion. My sister and I worked gathering photos from aunts, uncles, cousins, etc. We sold raffle tickets to make money for the next reunion and the winner of the raffle got the quilt. The sentiment of the whole story the quilt created was so overwhelming I decided to start making these quilts for others. Each quilt tells it's own family story.

Thank you for visiting Unpretentious Memories! I have been using my hands for over 40 years to make heirloom gifts for friends and family. I am inspired by nature, simplicity and sentiment. I am always learning something new-I feel it keeps my ideas evolving, even though I seem to go back to my favorites again and again-sewing, crochet, photography, cross stitch and embroidery, but try to leave myself open to new adventures. I also enjoy antique and vintage finds and incorporate them into some of my work.
