    Jerrie--that is absloutley precious!! :!: :D What a lot of work to get all those fine young boys lined up and sewed on--and the details are wonderful. The lattice just 100% adds to the effect. Congrats on an awesome job and thank you for sharing it.
    Is is a gift--or a keeper? :D

    Jerrie,
    Your quilt is just too cute! Lots and lots of fun!
    May I ask (I'm going to anyway!) How did you make the faces on your little boys? What technique? Need to know so I can file it away with the other "tricks of the trade" so to speak!
    Keep up the great work and keep posting your pics.

    Jerrie,
    Thanks for the input. I like to do embroidery also. I'm very impressed with your work. The faces look as if they've been drawn with a fine point sharpie!
