    Quilt ideas for 50th anniversary gift

    I was going to attempt to make my in laws a gift for their 50th anniversary which is in July 2017. I'm a beginner quilter at this point, having only pieced four total tops that have varied in size. What kind of quilting project would be good for people who already have everything? I don't want super complex, because I'm not sure I'd have the drive to get it done.

    If you're are wanting to make a home-made gift for them........? There are a couple of possibilities!

    A Memory photo creation (pillow, wall hanging) with photos of their 50 years together.....

    Or you could make a signature quilt for family, church members, close friends to sign for the 50th anniversary!

        Here is one I did for my parents 50th. I don't know how to link it but if you go to my albums under Quilting Trish's quilts and family, it's on the 3rd page, row 2, 1st picture . I took precut squares with freezer paper ironed to the back and provided the pigma pens. I also drew a 1/4" line around the inside for my seams so they wouldn't write outside that. I had kids, cousins, aunts and uncles, etc sign a block. It turned out to be a wall hanging and even after 10 years, it is still hanging. It really didn't take long to put it together and I think I just did a simple stitch in the ditch at the time.
