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.

I am a retired grandmother living in hot and sunny Florida. I spend most of my days doing what I love: sewing and quilting. I have a spoiled rotten Boston Terrier named Sami who keeps me busy mostly by cleaning up after her and refilling holes in the yard that she insists on digging and burying her toys. Of course then she digs them up and brings them into the house resulting in...you guessed it...more cleaning. I will be posting pictures of Sami, quilts, flowers, and other things as they come along. Glad to have you join me.

  1. Hi Peggy,
    Nice block for the last one, and you are rocking that quilt top! Yippee! It will be fun to see your’s all put together. I was just thinking about how to wrap up these blocks in one pleasing quilt top, although I don’t need another one to add to my to-be-quilted pile. ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. Thanks Roseanne. My stack is getting taller also, but I don’t mind. As a matter of fact I like knowing if I need a quilt for a special occasion I can grab one from the pile, quilt it, and I’m ready. That way I don’t stress over what pattern to use or the colors. It’s amazing how freeing it is to have those decisions taken care of. LOL…At least that is my story and I’m sticking to it.

  2. Looking great, I have no memories either of my grandmother’s cookies but I am pretty certain they baked them. Love your colours for this quilt along and look forward to seeing them all linked. I am doing row C at present.
