An Album Quilt is a type of friendship quilt.  Individual blocks are signed by friends and assembled into a quilt.  Album Quilts are then given to friends, relatives, pastors, or other public officials often commemorating a special event in their lives.

A popular album quilt is called a Baltimore Album which often has elaborate appliqued blocks. The photos show some traditional blocks and 2 of the books by Elly Sienkiewicz.  For more information about this author and to purchase her books, click here.
