Grandma's Album

I know I said I would either finish my pinwheel spin quilt or my Jelly Stars quilt next, but I decided to do Grandma's Album. This pattern is an old Moda University pattern. I made the top probably 2 years ago. Most of the fabric is one line or another of American Jane, mostly Peas and Carrots, with a few Apple Pie and Building Blocks. The binding is from Recess. I can't remember what line the back is from, but I bought it on clearance a long time ago. The back has a cream background, but I like white as a background on most projects best, especially brighter colors. I think it looks so clean and fresh. Oh well, the cream is on the back, right? I've had everything but the binding for this quilt forever, but I just have never gotten around to actually quilting it. Not sure why! It will be fun to finally delete it from my side bar list of quilts in progress.

of course no quilt picture is complete if Jake does not jump in at the last minute.



Next on the list to finish will probably be Jelly Stars. Not for a few days though. I've decided I need to applique a flower in between each quilt I bind. I'm on number 13 of 20 now!

I bought this pattern quite a few years ago too, and it's on my "to do" list. Your son looks so comfy resting on the quilt
