Quilting Is A Great Gift
Have you seen those photo quilts at the mall?
They are amazing and such a cute gift idea. To
make one, you provide a photo that is clear and
hopefully has some sort of meaning to the
recipient. This photo is then imprinted onto
the quilt cloth using various options. The
result is the photo of your choice right on a
quilt. Very cute!
These photo quilts are just
the perfect gift for so many occasions. They
make a great wedding gift with photos of the
happy couple on the quilt. They are also great
for moms or grandmas with photos of the kids on
the quilt. It would also make a great heirloom
quilt for a baby, and what about dog lovers?
Who wouldn't love a quilt with photos of their
favorite furry friend? The possibilities are
You'll need to search for
the best picture you can find that symbolizes
the occasion or person/pet depicted in the
photo. The picture needs to be of high quality
and can be print or digital.
The photo quilt company will then fuse the
photo right onto the quilt, so it looks like it
is sewn in. In some cases, you can get custom
embroidered or cross stitched quilts based on a
photograph but these take many manhours to do
by hand and are quite pricey.
If you want to order a photo
quilt as a gift be sure to factor in enough
time to have the quilt made and delivered. You
can check in your local mall for a store which
offers this unique service but if you can't
find one locally, then hop online. You can
submit your photo in digital form and place
your order online and have the quilt delivered
to you or the recipient.
Photo quilts really are beautiful and
thoughtful gifts that your friends and family
with cherish for years.
