    Baltimore block of month--so far

    I changed a few things around on my block. I didn't really like the little flowers so I decided to finish my inner block 18 inches, and my first border with bigger flowers finished at 6 inches. Then I put the shark tooth border around to finish at 3. So I will have to make more squares since 12 x 3 is 36 and that is what I have right now. But this works for me.

    I love it-- it's beautiful. I've been contemplating that first border with the teeny flowers and was trying to think of an alternative. After seeing yours I may do something with a larger flower. I'm doing mine by hand.

    Thanks, I really tried to do something with the little flowers but they seemed out of place with all the other flowers in the quilt. I put the 6.5 inch blocks together and then started with the vine and then added the leaves and lastly the flowers. It worked out well. The flowers could have been a little smaller but I am happy with them. With all the borders I will need to have three blocks on each side instead of two, but that shouldn't matter.
