I have changed my mind


You have seen this block before. Several months ago, I removed this image from my blog because of others. I am replacing it because of me. This block finishes at eight inches, so the individual applique pieces are very small. The smallest blue flowers are ultra-suede, everything else is needle turn applique. The design is from a beautiful vintage Baltimore Album quilt reduced to fit the parameters of the small quilt this design will be pieced into. The finished quilt along with perhaps 12 others will appear in a special Baltimore Album quilt exhibit at International Quilt festival in Houston, Texas in the fall of 2010. There is also a call for your new Baltimore Albums. I hope you share your work and spend some time looking at all the others. Applique is my passion and Baltimore applique my obsession.
