    That is FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!!! How ingenious is THAT?! That's even better than a big, over-priced framing job!

    bettle I did buy a pattern but wished I hadn`t after looking at it.
    Could have figured it out.
    THe first row is 11/2 inch with some thin iron stablizer folded in half like binding then sew folded side towards picture.
    I sewed one side strip then measured picture and sew the other then bottom and top. You sew this to a background you don`t see.
    The rest is what ever width you want with no stablelizer.
    Here`s the web site you can get ideas
    www,uppercanadaquiltworks.com
    The pattern I bought shows 3 side by side snapshot size so I want to make to give with my next baby quilt.
    Good luck.

    forgot to say I quilted a big x on the background under picture to hold batting.

    Gale,I love that. Nice colors.

    I've always wanted to go to Greece. The place has always fascinated me. I'm saving for a trip there but it may take me 2 or 3 more years to get enough money.What part of Greece did you visit?

    Oh. I wish I could go this year!!
