    So I know this is not quilt related but I still wanted to show it off :-)

    One of my friends is currently living in Japan where her DH is stationed. He recently deployed and since she is expecting I decided to make this for her so that she could hang it in the nursery and place pictures of her DH and family for the baby to see :-)

    If anyone would like to know how to do this, please just let me know and I would LOVE to pass on the knowledge :-)

    What a neat idea...and yes, I would like to know how to do this. My friend's daughter is expecting in Feb. and the nursery is going to be in bunny rabbits so this would be a great shower gift. Thanks for the offer. Marsha :-D

    I made one for my mother-in-law for Christmas a few years back and it was done out of Mississippi State fabric.

    She LOVED it!!

    I love the fabric. Is it fleece? I ask because I have never seen that fabric in a quilting cotton but I have made several baby blankets out of fleece with that same print.
    That is a really cute idea...not only for baby pics but even for a college dorm room or a teen-agers room! I would love the instructions...tell me what I need to do to get them.

    I actually have made SEVERAL for friends and family (my five siblings each got one last year for Christmas) but our little peanut wil have one or two for all the family that she has :-)

    I am going to be making another one here soon and when I do I am going to photograph each step and type a tutorial :-)

    Hey, Thanks for the idea. My grandson is difficult to find a Christmas gift for because at his age...early teens, a lot of things just aren't cool any more...including the word cool probably!!! But he just might like this to display some of his football snapshots, etc. and friends' pictures, etc., notes, etc. What do you all think? Would a 14 year old boy like one of these in his room or not. His younger brother will love a quilt but this teenager might not think a quilt is "cool"!!??

    Oh I LOVE this! I was just talking to my DD and her baby is due soon. They already have what they need but I think this would be a great addition to show off pics of the baby!

    She said she loves what I make.

    I PM'd you. Thanks!
