Pattern Description:

The Family Album, done in wool and needle-turn applique with embellishments, is the fourth block of our "Forever Bound" LDS Museum Quilt. The family is encircled by sunflowers for light and truth, and thistles for strength and protection. These two flowers are also "related" to each other and they can thrive under many adverse conditions. Sunflowers follow the light of the sun and the family is drawing strength and light from reading together.

This quilt was featured as "His Works- My Blessings" in the 2012 LDS International Art Competition and the March 2013 issue of The Ensign. The block finishes to about 17″ and will be one of 9 applique blocks, 4 tree of life blocks, pieced setting triangles, and borders that make up the entire quilt. It can also be used as a pillow top, if desired. The full pattern is being released on a block-of-the-month basis, so you can create your own museum piece.
