    Now I KNOW this is beyond my capabilities. Also, I don't have EQ....

    I have always wanted to do a Baltimore Album quilt but have been afraid be cause I have never done applique. Where did you find the fabric? Could I use any fabric of my own choosing? The closest place for fabric is at our local Walmart. I live in a small town in southwest Arkansas and would have to travel about 90 miles to find a regular fabric store. Thanks for your help.

    Are there templates? I'm having trouble getting the pattern.
    I don't have EQ.
    Thanks.
    OOps. Just saw a download near the picture.

    I have always loved the Baltimore style quilts, but have been too intimidated to try making one. I think the time has come to bite the bullet! I'm going to the Fabric store on Saturday and will pick up some extra for this project!

    Here is a link to a pdf pattern, tape it together on the dashed lines, trace the motifs on template plastic or freezer paper, I traced 1 of each flower, leaf, berries, etc. to be sure they were the same size. Then use the template to trace on the fabric.

    In the instructions use the bias stems, it's easier.

    Good luck, give it a try, maybe you'll enjoy it, it can be relaxing, and you can pick it up and put it down anytime, I sometimes work for 15 minutes at a time, put it down, and when you go back to it, you know exactly where you are!

    Use the master pattern to trace the templates.

    I buy most of my fabric online, I also do not have a close shop, go to http://www.quiltshops.com/, there are all kinds of shops there.

    You can use whatever fabric you like, personalize the quilt, don't feel you must copy my choices, I only posted them to help everyone as a suggestion. I happen to like batiks in this quilt type because the batik gives movement and automatic shading.
