Grandma’s Kitchen Quilt Along – Block 25 of 25

DSCN1371

Grandma’s Kitchen QAL block #25 is the final block and it is called Famous Cookies. This has been a fun project and I was so excited about getting the block instructions early that I finished it, attached it to the previous block, and added the borders before I remembered to take a picture. If all goes well I should be able to finish putting the quilt top together and posting it tonight.

I have no memories of either of my mammaws nor my aunts making cookies. They did make wonderful fruit cobblers, pies, and cakes. I remember a special German Chocolate cake one of my aunts made that took an extremely long time and would melt in your mouth. Aunt Mary did everything by hand to include grating the coconut and gathering, hulling, and chopping the walnuts. If you are not familiar with hulling walnuts it is not a fun experience and if you got the walnut stain on your hands it would last months. We were lucky to have a couple of huge walnut trees in the yard that produced lots of walnuts.

Back to my sewing room to finish this quilt top.
