Bear Family Album quilt

This is a block-of-the-month queen-size quilt that I ordered from Whichcraft in Invercargill in about 2003?  Finally got around to hand-appliqueing the blocks in about 2008 and 2009? Am not sure exactly.

Have had the frames/sashing/border fabrics and the finished blocks sitting in my UFO box for the past two years and have decided (an early NY resolution) to get it done!

7 Jan 2012: quilt-top completed! Now just waiting to be quilted and bound.
Was hard to get a good photo as the quilt is so big (and my handy helper hubby is off bowling!)
24 Dec 2011: So yesterday I framed all the blocks (except for the Mama and Papa as I didn't have enough of their framing fabric so will hunt out some more) and have sewn together the 'children' photos into rows ready to put altogether once the Mama and Papa are done.

Is a pattern from The Stitch Connection by Lynda Howell.
