With working on the memory quilt for my in-laws I have decided that I need to make one for myself.  I was 42 when when my hubby and I got married so if we are alive for a 50 year anniversary, I will be 92.  It is my second marriage so I have children and such to make a memory quilt.  The first grandchild is on it's way so I have set a time limit of either age 60 or 65 depending if my kids are done having their own kids by whichever age.  To start with I am in the process of scanning the photos that I want to use and printing some of them up.  I'm also making small pieces of edgings to use and doing some embroidery to use in the squares.  I bought a book that has crocheted edgings that include beads.  The Beaded Edge I've been enjoying making a lot of them.  I also found some vintage patterns free on the internet that I've been making.  I plan on making a few squares each year so that it's not some big project like I had with the one I just finished.  In the quilt I made my hubby all the embroidery except on the seams was done by machine but on the in-laws' quilt I did it all by hand.  I think for mine I will also do it all by hand.  It's almost as much fun doing all the preliminary work as it is putting the quilt together.
