I made a quilt for a Home Ec. project when I was about 16 years old. It was blue and pink and had a Mr. Men man on it (no particular character). I made a feature of his nose, using a towel-like fabric and padding it out so it stuck out from the rest of his body. To this day that quilt is the single greatest thing I've ever created. This is possibly the reason why I like this here idea so much.
I came across the DIY extravaganzafest that was Jess and TJ's wedding on 100LayerCake and immediately honed in on the eye catching quilt. The quilt was made from piece of fabrics that Jess asked her guests to send her months before the wedding. Her guests sent on pieces from t-shirts, table cloths, baby blankets etc (I know, it's hard enough to get a 'Yay' or 'Nay' text from most people). She then pieced the fabrics together and got a local embroiderer to finish it off.
I think it added a really nice splash of colour to her photos and was a brilliant way to make the guests feel part of the day.
