    I am planning to get together with 2 others sisters for a week near Chicago this month to make different quilt tops.We usually bring each other a small gift or small quilted article.Today--i saw in a magazine a quilted bullentin board--to tak up pics of quilts to do or quilt ideas or memos.So because i am toooo cheap to buy one--i decided to make 2 myself.I bought 2 large pic frames and 2 quilted pillow shams(the kind that come with the cheap china quilts)I also bought some thin cork from Jo annes .I took the glass out of the frames and cut the back of the frame down just a hair so the material would wrap around it.I sprayed the back with spray glue and put the cork on it.Went on real easy.Then i added a thin layer of batting.Then i wrapped the quilted material around the back and hot glued the edges to the back.Oh--i painted the frames white.They turned out real cute!!The one in the magazine also had 4 small glass knobs on the bottom of the frame--but the frames i had didnt have enough edge for them and although they were cute--what would you hang on them--a measuring tape or something?? I also washed the shames before i used them.fun project and i am sure my sisters will love them!! oh--i forgot to mention i got yhe frames and shams from the thrift store.Cheap project!!

    Could you post a photo of them, sounds like a wonderful gift. What about hanging a couple of small fabric pieces or flower pins so they can hang something on it??
