Default Heirloom album

My dear mother-in-law passed away in April after just turning 90. She was a great quilter and made several for all of us{30 in immediate family}. I made this after her husband passed away in2009. The front is a picture of the family farm, then their wedding pic and 60th ann. pic. I also included pics of her 4 childrens weddings.
I used Jean Boyds pattern as a jumping off point to design it. I used beige fabrics and antique lace.

VERY nicely done. I am sure the family will pass this album on thru generations.
