New Quilties From Old Photographs - Photo Fabric Collage

I love working with old photographs, and incorporate them with vintage fabric, lace, buttons and ephemera into quilties.  I have a lot of photographs from albums I bought at an antique store a few years ago.  Most of the photos are taken in the early 1900s.  From clues I discovered in one of the albums, I have determined that it is from Carroll County Iowa.  The people in these photographs look happy and full of life.  Soon I will share some of the actual photographs, but today I am going to share little quilties that I made.  They are 4" x 6" and are photographed on a blue denim background.
