My First Photo Memory Quilt - Pug Themed

My very dear friend, Mary, had asked me to make a photo memory quilt featuring photos of her daughter and future son-in-law and their beloved pugs, for their wedding.  I had never made a photo memory quilt before, so this was a fun and exiting quilt for me to attempt.
Mary helped me with the measuring and cutting of the materials, and kept me company while I sewed the pieces together.
Once the quilt top was finished, we took it to Jannie's Quilting in Weston, WI to be long arm quilted.
Yesterday was Randy's and Courtney's wedding, today was the gift opening.  Mary text messaged me earlier today to tell me that she made them wait to open the quilt last, and that when they did open it, they both loved it, and Courtney even cried when she saw the quilt.  How wonderful it feels to know how much something like this meant to them!
So that they've finally been given the quilt, I can finally post photos of it online!  The pug centerpiece of this quilt was purchased on eBay.  The rest of the materials were purchased at our local Hancock Fabrics and JoAnne Fabrics stores.
