Late Night Sewing- Heading for Baltimore
It's so large that I don't really have anywhere suitable to take a photograph yet so this is as much as I can show you at the moment. You can see the border which I am currently working on and I have about 3/4's of the first border finished. I think I'll also applique the rose centres in a gold fabric to match the small squares between the sashing and I've included photos of a couple of the blocks to show a bit more detail.
I am going to machine quilt this one and plan to enter it in the Vic Quilters Showcase hopefully next July, but if not then the following year. I stayed up sewing until 11pm last night and it's great to see so much progress for so much work. LOL!
I still LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Baltimore Album quilts and was very lucky to be at Houston in 2010 when they had a special exhibition of Baltimore Album quilts. I was in quilting heaven! Now I'm looking forward to having one to keep. Lots of stitching happening here so check back soon.
Hugs, Jan Mac
