    My 7 year old son (never stop going) Emmanuel made two pictures. He then asked me to make them into quilts. The house was made the exact same size using a copy of his picture as templates. The second one I just used as inspiration and guide. He "allowed" me to change the leaves because he wanted a tulip but drew the leaves of a rose and also he let me add some trapunto around the frame.

    My version of the house after he selected the fabrics

    Those are great, and I love the fact that he asked you to make them in quilts. I think you have a budding fabric artist in the house

    What a fun idea. I'm going to see my grandchildren this week, I think I will see if they want to do this. I love your quilt hanger on the first one :)

    Is actually a pant hanger. I put it there to display and ended up keeping it there. I like how it looks.
