    searching for a past post, please help

    I am searching for the tutorial of how a member did a silhouette wallhanging from pictures of family. I think she did these for graduation presents. I have search the archives and current post but cannot find them. I have looked under silhouette, graduation gifts, and tutorials. No luck. If you know what I am talking about please reply to post.
    Thanks so much!!!!

    It was grammatjr.

    She was calling them Fusible Stained Glass Portrait Quilts.

    I refer to them as the Diploma Quilts ;-)
    Very neat effect.


    She did, however, pull the tutorial off the board because she was going to write a book.
    The link below is to her post explaining that.

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/tutoria...ml#post4023824

    However, if you use the links in the post right after, you should find enough information to make your own.

    I do not know the status of the book - I don't remember reading anything further about it on the board, but I could have missed it.
    You could PM her for more info.

    She first posted those diploma/graduation quilts in early 2011.

    Here are more recent quilts she did using the same technique:
    "Delite-ful" - Cut Work Portrait
    Cut Work Portrait of Kitty "Purr-fect"

    ​It looks like the tutorial has been removed by request as she is working on a book?

    Thank you for the information...wish I had downloaded the tut ...would buy the book anyway as I am a visual person but would love to try now. I have sent a PM to find out when the book will be out. I did look at the other info and will try but...not too sure about what to do...love pictures.
    Thank you for the link.
    Its been awhile since I have been on...taking care of elderly parents and spare time is at the sewing machine. I am trying a thread painting wall hanging...loving it....if you have threads to any who have tried or advise...please send them to me.
    Blessings to you today! Happy stitching!

    more Diploma quilts

    I have added a project like this to my bucket list as well. Have a look at the post above. There are written instructions. I have not tried them yet, but hope to soon.
