Just as I based this fabric portrait on an image of my parents, any suitable photo can be converted into an amazing one-of-a-kind art quilt according to your specifications and colors. The enjoyment this personalized gift will bring is limitless.
Think of the gift possibilities: wedding, anniversary, birthday, new baby, Christmas, Chanukah…
Convo me about creating your favorite photo in a quilted wall hanging. Pricing will be based on the complexity of the design, the number of fabrics used and the finished size of the portrait. Schedule to be discussed.
The wall hanging shown is made from 4 fine cotton fabrics with heavy thread painting and a hanging sleeve for a dowel.
