    My 7 year old son (never stop going) Emmanuel made two pictures. He then asked me to make them into quilts. The house was made the exact same size using a copy of his picture as templates. The second one I just used as inspiration and guide. He "allowed" me to change the leaves because he wanted a tulip but drew the leaves of a rose and also he let me add some trapunto around the frame.

    My version of the house after he selected the fabrics

    Those are great, and I love the fact that he asked you to make them in quilts. I think you have a budding fabric artist in the house

    What a fun idea. I'm going to see my grandchildren this week, I think I will see if they want to do this. I love your quilt hanger on the first one :)

    Is actually a pant hanger. I put it there to display and ended up keeping it there. I like how it looks.

    Spending time with a child is never wasted time. It is cherished memories for both.
    I like the way he blocks turned out. Keep up with the good ideas

    What a wonderful way to preserve his artwork. I think you may have inspired many Moms and Grandmas to do the same with their kids/grandkids. You did a great job and you have a very special quilt designer. :-D

    What a super thing for you to do! He will be so proud some day. I wish I were talented enough to go through some of the pictures I have from my boys and grandkids and do something like this.... I may try, but doubt I have the talent you do. Thanks so much for the pics and sharing - and ideas too even if I feel totally intimidated.

    What an awesome son and mom you guys are! Wonderful pics and quilts!!! I've been making things with my DGD this week since they're visiting from IN. I'm so glad that my DD thought to bring some special projects for all of us to do together!

    They're both immensely charming. You did an awesome job of capturing and interpreting his artwork.
