  1. Great Christmas idea for grandparents. Take family photos imprinted on quilt like material. Make into quilted wall hanging, or a beautiful throw for favorite chair or sofa. My mother received one, and my dad still has it hanging on wall. She absolutly loved it. It even had pics of her and my dad right after they were married. I can't look it without warm feelings of how much she loved it

    1. Kelley that is such a wonderful gift with so much meaning to it.
