ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany woman used her special talent to honor President Obama.

Elizabeth Haines has been quilting since she was 13.

She used seven yards of material to create this spectacular quilt as a birthday gift for her son.

The 12 squares are filled with magazine and newspaper images on the new president.

"He wanted this for his birthday, so what happened he got these pictures out of the magazines and had it printed," said Elizabeth Haines, Quilter.

The quilt cost about $500 to make.

Her son hopes to have the quilt displayed at the Albany civil rights museum.
