    Hello, thought I would share what I did this evening. The first two blocks are catch up from previous BoMs. The third I got inspired by the tulip... I found this on a Baltimore Album site, along with two other patterns that I would like to try.



    Amish Diamond... both are vintage fabrics.

    My updated Baltimore Album block. This pattern is from 1846.

    Those are nice! I must admit though, my favorite picture is of Patches melting off of the living room table! (I love that you used the word melt! Not sliding, but melt! ) :mrgreen:

    I am so glad you shared the upclose pics! I'm still learning that, too.
