    Wedding gift

    This is a wedding gift for my best friend's daughter and her new husband. It's my version of 'something old, and something new'. Old pattern with pictures of bride and groom growing up mixed in the blocks. I hope they like it.

    What a clever idea- they will love it especially with all the pics "hidden" in it

    What an awesome quilt! It's so much more interesting than the traditional photo quilts. They will really love that gift.

    what a neat idea. I don't normally care for picture quilts, but I think that is really a clever approach. the overall effect is great. Good job!

    Very cool!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    How interesting! They will love it. And imagine how much fun they'll have when children come along and are old enough to play. They'll use it like an "I Spy" quilt. Love the idea.
