I can't answer all your questions but have a guess on the Baltimore applique'. I've seen a few of these quilts and they are distinguished by their very intricate applique'. See this link for an example:
The last one I saw, in the Lowell, MA, quilt museum was king size. It looked like someone spent an entire lifetime making it, it is so detailed!

Hope you get feedback on your other questions. I'd like to know too!
