Sophisticated Heritage Anna Griffin Quilted Lay Out

This is another Anna Griffin favorite pattern of mine.  I did one for each of my children.  It almost looks like an old-fashioned baby blanket to me.  I have altered the look for a few other pages by changing the pattern and colors. I do a heritage album for each child and then other albums of  every day life, like school, awards, trips, etc.  The heritage album is more sophisticated in feel and style  Lay Outs.  This photo was taken in black and white, when my son was small. The little outfit was so sweet and reminiscent of years ago.  The yoke on the blouse worked perfectly with the feel of this Lay Out.   The page looks complicated, but the weaving of this pattern is really quite simple.  It is the cutting that must be precise.  It does take ten papers, 2 solids of different colors and eight of similar and matching colors in patterns, all different.  Cut  six of the patterned papers into one inch strips.  Then, let the weaving begin. Once the weaving complete and fastened in the edges only.  It is double matted in the one remaining solid and one pattern. The interior frame is a purchased AG, but could so easily be made.  Using the remaining solid paper I  shadowed the oval frame in the  coordinating color blue and cut by hand.  Accent cream satin ribbon on the corners and center bow are 1/2 inch wide.  Name plate information computer printed.  I am very pleased with the finished page.  It really does have that wow factor as a two page spread, one page for each child.  Hope you like!!!!!
