I kind of feel like it's a little corny for me to do a wallhanging with pictures, but it's not about what I would like, but what she would like. And I know she's going to love it! I simply printed the family photos on colorfast fabric sheets with 2" finished sashing strips.
To fill the extra space that doesn't have photos, I placed two of these great blocks, appropriately called "Nelson's Victory." I hope she can appreciate the title of the quilt block as much as I did when picking it out!
The final touch for the wallhanging was to add this half square triangle border. Not being square, I knew that the triangles wouldn't line up perfectly on one side, but I'm still happy with the results. The colors are perfect for my mom and I know she'll love the pictures of her kids.
Pictures of all the other fabulous handmade gifts I've sewn up will be coming after the holiday.
Have a wonderful holiday weekend. Merry Christmas!
