    Very nice. It amazes me all the things we can do today, scanning those photos onto the fabric and placing them in that beautiful arrangement.

    Very nice. She must love it.

    I saw a quilt made at a show that was made similar to that where the person created blocks that looked like black and white tvs and she stitched rabbit ear antennas, and in each tv, the person used a black and white image of an old black and white sitcom, Andy Griffith, Leave it to Beaver, Father Knows Best, Make Room for Daddy, Dick Van Dyke, I Love Lucy, etc. Very nostalgic.

    There's so much you can do with photos and quilting now.

    Great job! Love the photos on it.
    Can you please tell me how you did it? I want to make one of my kids for my mother for Xmas. Shel'll get a kick out of that. She has Alzheimer's so maybe it will help her to remember them.

    I agree the quilt is wonderful, I also think it's wonderful to have a mother in law you feel is worth it.

    That's really special dblseas. I love how you framed each photo and how they blend in with the blocks. You sure did a good job!! What a wonderful gift. :)

    That is such a nice gift. Did you do the photo's yourself? If so, would you share the process w/ me, since I have been wanting to do this for some time now.

    Blessings,
