Would you appreciate/like these for your kids?
Instead of giving toys or clothes to my nieces and nephews for x-mas giving a handmade quilt with their pictures on them and things they like to do that year. For example I am almost done with my sons and have made one each year for him. The first year he got a pooh one with his pictures, and some baby print fabric, last year he got trains, with his pictures, This year he is getting a combo micky, elmo, and trains, with his pictures. I let him use them for the year (would longer if he wanted to) then hang them on a quilt rack in my living room for people to see.
