Finish it up Friday, Q2 FAL 2014 and Blogger’s Quilt Festival!

This post has been a long time coming! I actually finished this a week ago but waited to  post until now as I will be gifting it this weekend. I am so happy to say that the Album quilt is done! IMG_7917 IMG_7927 IMG_7933 IMG_7938 IMG_7945 Daughter #3 took the pictures above for me. This quilt measures 96″ x 106″. I started it in February of this year.   20140514-213328.jpg 20140514-213342.jpg 20140514-213405.jpg I started this quilt in February and finished it in May of 2014. The Album block is a traditional block that I redrafted to that I could use my die cutter to cut the shapes for the 56 blocks. I quilted it using a pantograph by Patricia Ritter called Chaparral. There are over 202,000 stitches in the quilting. It measures 96″ by 106.” It was made for my parents. Shhh!!! They haven’t gotten it yet!

This project was on my list for the 2nd Quarter of the Finish Along 2014 hosted by Katy at The Littlest Thistle. My original list of goals can be found here.

This is my entry in the Large Quilts category for the Blogger’s Quilt Festival hosted by Amy at Amy’s Creative Side. Go see all the other quilts and win prizes from all her great sponsors!

Linking up with Amanda at Crazy Mom Quilts, Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict for Can I Get a Whoop Whoop?, and Richard and Tanya for Link a Finish Friday.
