(Class is FULL)
Each month we will make a component of a block
– making as many of that part as are required for the whole quilt.
We will emphasize not only color choices, but also, cutting,
piecing, squaring up, and accuracy.
Each step of the way we will use quality control to ensure that
our parts will fit together when we are ready to assemble the blocks.
You will choose a primary color (mine is
green), a secondary color (mine is gray), and an accent (mine is the
pink/coral). You can use my
colors or choose your own. Your
background will depend on your color choices – white, cream, white with
black, light grays, etc. The finished size of the quilt is 72” x 72”.

Baltimore Album $15
Fri. March 13, 10am-1pm
Baltimore Album Appliqué is a
modern term used to describe the
elegant Appliqué blocks that
emerged in Maryland and southern
Pennsylvania during the 1840's
and 1850's. They were
masterpieces of needlework and
used many types of Appliqué
techniques, padding, fabric
manipulation, embroidery and
inking techniques. We will
explore these techniques and
make some beautiful quilt
blocks. This type of Hand
Appliqué is time-consuming, and
we live busy lives today. We will each progress at
our own pace as we consider this
a "Learning" sit and sew. Many of the
Baltimore Album Pattern Books
are now out of print,
however, Linda can provide
patterns from her collection.

y-seams before, no problem! Marti’s instructions and Linda’s advice make
