Several years ago I took a quilt class from Tammie Bowser who does quilted photography. It was just my kind of quilting: fast, easy, all machine, and unique. Tammie is offering a free online quilt class that gives you an informative easy tutorial on how to do these quilts http://freequiltclass.com/lesson1-2/
I'm in the mood to make another quilt. I have the book, but for those of that don't, it is free to download for those taking the online class. About the only other thing you'll need is fusible tricot, a printer, computer, and a photo. You could easily create one of these in a weekend. Here's a photo of the one I did.
It is my mom's junior class photo. I think I made it for her for Mother's Day one year. This quilt consists of 1.5" squares sorted by value and placed on a numbered grid according to their value. I easily made this from start to finish in a weekend. Watch the video and see how easy it is! My quilt is about 24x30.
