    I made my grandson a twin sized quilt from super heroes and plain colors, backed with another print of superheroes. I stitched in the ditch for sturdiness, and tied it for effect, since I had tied my kids quilts when they were young. My DH didn't hold it up to well for picture, but it is one of 7 quilts for Christmas this year.I will post pics of the others too, although my photography skills are lacking.

    My granddaughter's room is decorated in tinkerbell, so I made her's diferent prints of tinkerbell and pink, green, purple, and white. I backed it with a tinker bell sheet. I stitched in the ditch for sturdiness, and tied it for effect, since I had tied my kids quilts when they were young. My DH didn't hold it up to well for picture, but it is one of 7 quilts for Christmas this year.I will post pics of the others too, although my photography skills are lacking.

    For my DD in law, I made a picture quilt/ wall hanging with their family. it had their wedding pic, the birth pic of each child, all with info printed on them, dates etc. then pics of family, and each parent with a child. I backed it with crushed velvet type material. the pics are 5 x 7 size, I had to adjust several of them, for they were oriented the wrong way, but I had my mind made up on what pics to use so I made them work.

    Great quilts, Love the colors, I'm an ole lady but I love Tinker Bell. Your Hubby just wanted to get credit for being the model. Just tell him we like lots and lots of smiles.
