    I am a new quilter. Just about to start my first quilt- a small wall hanging to get me familiar with everything. I have that one all planned. What I need help with is the next one. I want to do one for my son who is turning 18. He has saved us thousands and thousands of dollars in the last few years by teaching himself home improvement including plumbing, flooring, walls, etc. Has taken my master bath and part of my bedroom down to the studs, repaired the leaky pipes, removed the bathtub, etc, and is in the process of putting everything back together. Amazing young man.

    I am wanting to make a quilt for him showing his talents and don't have enough experience to do it right. Can you help? Some possible fabric I have found is on equilter.com. I have a public wish list and would really appreciate any and all ideas, feedback, etc. I am under [email protected] for the wish list. If you have an idea, even if it doesn't involve these fabrics, or you have a pattern, I am listening. I also am thinking I want to incorporate pictures of him transferred onto fabric showing him doing the work. Help!! Oh, the quilter quips is not a part of the possible fabric :) Thanks, Virginia

    One idea might be to use the tape measure fabric to create frames around pics of him.

    How about making your first quilt and testing out what you can do before you plan the second? I know it's exciting, most of us are always planning several quilts ahead, but right now you might be better off just making some sketches.

    What an adorable idea!

    virgwid, I went to your wishlist and didn't see any tool fabric, maybe I missed it? If I did here is the link for some tool fabric they carry. Just scroll down the page a bit. Hope this helps. Let us know what you decide.

    I forgot to add the link - here it is.
