Red face Latest Grandsons "Family Life Quilt for Nixon"

I have made this Family quilt for my youngest grandson for his first birthday. He joined 2 loving older sisters, and a loving Mom and Dad. I used photos starting from when Mom was pregnant and then when he was born up to his Christening in November and got it done for his birthday in February. His dad is a Carlton Football supporter, and the 3 children were quickly enrolled in the footy club here in Melbourne as well. so I used the dark blue and white. the Carlton colors. I printed the pictures all on the fabric quilting material I get from Punch and Judy in New south Wales. I like it better than the plastic type transfers as it holds up better. I like to put the name and Birthday on the quilts I make for new babies, as that will be a remembrance for the future for them.

It is very easy and just follow the instructions on the packet and set the print resolution on high and works good each time.
