Those are nice. If you're into quilting and want to have some original artwork of yours made into fabric these folks will make up yards of custom 60# broadcloth for you:

I've been thinking about having some of my art made into cloth since I'm not into quilting just as a tapestry would be neat. :D

That is pretty neat - design your own fabric like that. I've seen at Wal-mart where they put a photo onto a rug or towel or something, but I like this better.

I didn't design this fabric -- I purchased it. There's a lot of novelty fabric out there for quilting.

Pretty neat but I thought you were a little young to be a Beatles fan :wink:

My sister-in-law is into quilting with some of her friends. Check out the custom quilt I had made for my wife.

Nothing like a warm quilt for the bed in the winter. Well, winters that see cold that is :lol:

I also listen to Mozart and he's before my time too. :P

35 isn't that young, and anyway, you're never too young to be a Beatles fan! :wink:

I'm just about to start my very first quilt, Kevin, so it'll be a while before I'm experienced enough to use these. :wink:

I got more fabric in! :D

the last one reminds me of "a day in the life" from the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album

"4000 holes in Blackburn Lancashire" :D

@Kevin: I haven't seen any other bands, but then I haven't been looking. There are more types of quilting fabric available than you can possibly imagine. For example, check out the site for the catalog I ordered the second set of fabric from: http://www.keepsakequilting.com.

Yes, I crocheted that afghan. Thank you. :)

@hob: It's the "Sea of Holes" from Yellow Submarine. Most of these fabrics are based on that movie. But as I recall, when they were popping in and out of those holes one of them paraphrased a line from "A Day in the Life" -- "as many as it takes to fill the Albert Hall". :wink:
