    Thank you, I have been tyedying fabric for about 10 years making quillows, and there isn't anything like it. I had some white cotton that just needed something done with it. Some of it was vibrant and some really merged together to make a yucky color, but sometimes that has a place in a quilt too. I really like stepping out of the box and am really non traditional but Baltimore is as traditional as you can get.....LOL

    Good luck with the border, it was so stressful since I had to do a lot of math to get everything to fit. LOL

    Very nice, I have a Baltimore Album quilt however it was yardage and I cut all the pieces out and made my own quilt design and then hand quilted around each one . No one in my family is a quilter and they all tell me it is their favorite quilt, I thank them and do not tell them it was printed on there & no one is any the wiser. I am very pleased the way it came out. There were four of us who seen it hanging in a quilt shop & she did not have any more like it so I did some internet research and found enough for all of us. I am the only one who has gotten anything done on it let alone done and hanging. I am very pleased with the outcome. How are you going to quilt yours?
    Happy Quilting

    I hope your regular heat and bond did ok when you sewed them on. A long time ago, I used reg. h & b and tried to applique. My thread kept breaking and the needle kept breaking. I finally gave up on it and later found out that I should have used light heat and bond.

Bonni, I would love to see what you do with yours. I did use regular heat and bond and there is a whole lot of thread in this, but I used different varigated threads for the stitches on the applique

    Awesome quilt. I love it.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I love already printed quilt blocks. I use them all the time to practice my machine quilting and anyone who has received one, loves it too. Totally agree, that the print is awesome. I am going to echo a little and then go from there. I have a Juki on a minipinni frame so it has to talk to me......LOL

    Beautiful quilt, love the borders. Love the colors. I am still working on mine as I am making a king size. Haven't even squared the blocks yet. Thanks for posting.
