Had you thought about adding photo transfers? I just did a memory quilt for my father and found that it's remarkably easy...If you have an ink jet printer and know how to print pictures, you can do it! Try using a product called "printed Treasures" (availible on line or at quilt shops...maybe even at Walmart!). It's cloth already prepped for use in your printer.

Sorry about the old link.
Here is a link I just found.
It looks to be a good link and the frame is about the right size.
I have an old set of frames that were once one of my sister's MIL so need to get them back to the kids. Then, I need to get a set made for myself.

Just found another place and some other interesting sites.
Here is a place to buy them.
Here are some just for showing your quilts.
Hope one of these will help you both and anyone else who is interested.

DD fell in love with the metalic star print at a quilt show ages ago (3years!!??) and begged me to buy it for her. I had a dreadful time working it into this pattern (it is very directional/stripey) but she's pleased witht he results.
I didn't start on the quilt until last spring, and the top has been lurking in my UFO (Un-finished Objects)pile for more then a year. Now It is finally quilted and I'm more then half done with the binding. It's backed with hot pink flannel, so i know she'll stay toasy warm this winter!

If this link works, you might be able to get an idea of how it's done.
And this link shows you how to block them so they fit together just right:
The only real challenge is to assembling the star. I strongly advise being very careful to start and stop 1/4" from the edge when you put the points together or you'll end up with a hump in the middle that you cannot press out, and the 'Y' seams will be a nightmare to do when you put on the corner pieces.
