    Here are two of the enlarged quilted portraits that we have done. Gabriel's photo was snapped by her grandmother and it was so beautiful that we enlarged it. It is machine quilted. The face and hair have a sculpted look wit its quilting while there is a kind of meandering all around her.
    The portrait of my brother-in-law, Jerry, was done to honor him for the Memorial Day parade. There was a float honoring Vietname Vets and since he is no longer with us, this portrait went along with the rest of the area Vets.

    What a fabulous way to represent him!

    Both quilts are a wonder.

    They are lovely but I'm confused as to how they are done.
