Austen Family Album Top Finished!

I finished up the top for my Austen Family Album quilt about a week and a half ago but have had the hardest time getting decent pics!  This one is just so big! So here it is!!!

 
All 104" square of it.  There was no place big enough around my apartments to lay it out so I made a trip to mom's to use her front yard.  :)  It is absolutely gorgeous.  The yellow sets off the 1930's prints so beautifully.This one is going to have to go out to a longarmer.  Those setting blocks just scream for special quilting.  My daughter said daisies in the setting blocks which I think is perfect for the yellow and white.

 
 I love this one so much.  I can hardly wait to get it quilted and bound.  Maybe a new bed to showcase it better, what do you think?  :)

Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts.

There's still time to whip up the first block for our Not So Last Minute Christmas QAL.  I've got a lovely set of batik fat quarters in front of me just waiting to give out to a lucky somebody that links up their first block this weekend!  Come join the fun!
