    I had a productive day while it snowed and blowed outside. This block has 315 pieces in it and I am glad all the blocks are now done. The border is supposed to have 32 flowers, I am thinking about doing a much simpler border- maybe just have flowers in the corner,as I really want to get on to hand quilting it. I will post pics as I start piecing it together.

    block is 18 inches

    Hi: Chris here. The sample I just viewed is awesome!! I can't imagine how you perservered. May I ask how long you have been working on this quilt? Do the 18" blocks make is easier to piece? Will you be hand or machine quilting? When I try to machine quilt the project does "its own thang"!!!!

    :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: That is a terrific looking block! I have long admired Baltimore quilts, but it had never occurred to me to turn the curvy, applique into straight lines and doing it in pieces! That is really cool!
    Thanks for sharing
