Click over to Quiltmaker’s site to read the accompanying EQ7 lesson. You can apply the same idea to lots of different irregular shaped patchwork projects- like purse panels and clothing patterns.

Helen Rusch Phillips and Remembering Quilts – Capturing Memories on Fabric

Helen Rusch Phillips makes photo quilts…very special photo quilts. She says her goal is to “bring comfort”…and she does, in more ways than one.

Helen says, I taught myself how to print Photos on Fabric after losing my mother following her issues with Alzheimer’s. I saw what can be done for people dealing with memory issues in their waning years or memory loss due to injury/illness and bring relief to patients, family members or caregivers. My passion later grew to assist families with Veterans dealing with TBI/PTSD. And later yet to honor and remember our fallen heroes. It is an amazing experience to help families tell a story with their photos. I chose “Remembering Quilts” because it is a blend of what technology has to offer with the traditional warmth and caring of a family quilt.

I started making the Remembering Flags before Memorial Day 2012 to bring a little comfort to Gold Star Families I connected with on Facebook and plan to continue my personal mission to Honor and Remember our Fallen Heroes with their precious photos and special words. My husband is a retired Naval Aviator. My oldest son is a Naval aviator and Iraq veteran and my daughter-in-law is in the Coast Guard and thus we all see how my photos on fabric can bring some comfort to the families and friends of our Fallen Heroes. While flying a late night mission over Baghdad in 2007, my son took the background photo of a sunrise I use in many of the collages.

I use EQ Printable Fabric Panels from Electric Quilt(I am extremely happy with the EQ Printables) and garden flags from Custom Decor Flag & Garden.

and her My Remembering Quilts and Remembering Flag story was aired on the ABC TV Above and Beyond Show.

We’re happy to be a small part of what Helen is doing.
