    Ok the first picture is the finished wall hanging I posted earlier about. I took it outside and it doesnt look that great, but it is in person :) My husband said she is going to cry when she sees it. He will be making a wood wall hanging for it. I did a VERY simple qulting on it. Just around the picturs and also around the borders. I think the letters turned out pretty neat looking. Makes it almost look like lace.

    I love this one! I need to do one of these for my daughter's wedding. How did you transfer photos? Did you follow instructions in a book, or what?

    Beautiful work.... Thanks for sharing. Did you do the pictures yourself or did you take them somewhere to be copied? I am trying to build up my courage to do one each for my kids as a memory of their childhood. Thanks for any info!

    I used a pattern from a book, Quilt-Lovers Favorites volume 2 from Better Homes and Gardens. They call it an Anniversary Quilt. I just used photo transfer paper for the pictures.

    :D

    That's fabulous! Now I have to make one - or seven. Does each sibling deserve one? Your MIL will love it.
