    While in Greece this past summer I bought this oil.
    DiDn`t want to pay big bucks to have it framed , so I made this. I left some canvas showing as I din`t want to cut off the artists signature,
    I wised I`d made the first orange strip wider but live n learn lol.
    I still need to quilt around some fish.

    Very clever. I would have never thought to sew through canvas like that. Great frame! Thanks for sharing!

    This is a cool idea. Did you follow a pattern or instructions? Is there a link with such information? I'd like to make one but haven't a clue how it should go together.

    bettle I did buy a pattern but wished I hadn`t after looking at it.
    Could have figured it out.
    THe first row is 11/2 inch with some thin iron stablizer folded in half like binding then sew folded side towards picture.
    I sewed one side strip then measured picture and sew the other then bottom and top. You sew this to a background you don`t see.
    The rest is what ever width you want with no stablelizer.
    Here`s the web site you can get ideas
    www,uppercanadaquiltworks.com
    The pattern I bought shows 3 side by side snapshot size so I want to make to give with my next baby quilt.
    Good luck.

    forgot to say I quilted a big x on the background under picture to hold batting.

    Gale,I love that. Nice colors.

    I've always wanted to go to Greece. The place has always fascinated me. I'm saving for a trip there but it may take me 2 or 3 more years to get enough money.What part of Greece did you visit?

    Oh. I wish I could go this year!!

    I really like the canvas showing. And the orange strip is just right. Great frame.
