    Looking for something for a 70th Anniversary

    My folks will have a 70th Anniversary in May. My DS, DB & myself are wanting to have a special party for them. I am looking for a project to make for them. I have already made them a, king size, photo quilt for their 60th. Now am trying to figure out what to do for their 70th. Would be so great full for any great ideas out there.

    how about a signature quilt or wallhanging? You could bring precut squares of a white or beige fabric to the party along with gelly roll pens or any pigma pen and have the guests inscribe a square. Then, take the squares home and make the quilt or wallhanging.

    These are all good ideas, but they already have several quilts that I have made them plus the 60th photo quilt was also a signature quilt. It had a double wedding ring in the middle with a photo or signature square in the middle of each block. Ended up with 97 pictures on it of their life together plus all their kids, grand kids & Great grand kids on it. So am looking for something a little different.

    If you embroider you could get everyone to send you a sentence about or to your folks and then embroider them with the names around a tablecloth.

    you could do something quite different - quilt a fitted cover for their favorite chair[s] or loveseat...
    or quilted cushions for the kitchen chairs with hearts on those.

    How about matching bathrobes?
