    This is a "celebrity" quilt I made for my son. He has had his picture made with several celebrities during his life so I thought I would put them in a quilt. The top picture is him with Reba McEntire, there is him with Barbara Mandrell, the high school cheerleaders, Carmen, his sister, Festus, Lee Greenwood, with the wonderful kids from Texas High School Rodeo Finals, Sherry Lewis and more. He has cerebral palsy and suffered through many trials in his life, but as you can see he has been blessed by so many. And he has been a blessing as well. This is just a sample. The butterfly quilt is made of old hankerchiefs given to me by one of my customers. Some were her mother's and she is in her 80's. (the daughter)

    The butterflies are nice but I dearly love the quilt you did for your son. I want to do a picture quilt for my 8 yr. old grandson. His dad died when he was not quite 2 yrs. old and then in Jan. of this year our daughter (his Mom) died from a massive blood clot in her lungs. I want to do a wall hanging for him of his Mom and Dad. I might get that done by his birthday or Christmas this year. Birthday is in Oct. How did you put your pictures on fabric. I can do it with my printer but am wondering if there is a better way.

    That would be such a treasure for him. So sorry about your daughter. I lost my sister six years ago from blood clots in her lungs. Very hard time and still is as I'm sure it is with you. I printed
    the pictures on transfer paper that I got at hobby lobby. Just remember to turn it around. Or mirror the pictures. I know that is the wrong language. He was sitting in front of a boat ramp with his fish he had caught and I did not turn it and therefore the letters "cove harbor" were backwards. Also on his graduation picture his school's name was backwards. The paper is too expensive to waste. I learn by my mistakes.
