    PokerDiva, you're right...it is the 8th. I've lost track of the days. My mother passed away over New Years and I'm having a hard time. I know it will get better. I did 3 BOM's last year and I thought the Baltimore Album came out on the 8th.

    So sorry to hear about your mother. The block is suppost to come out on the 8th but every since she was caught in Hurricane Irene it has not been on time. Totally understandable. I am also working on a Rose of Sharon quilt so I might just do some substitutions if I can go back and find the orignal design which like a dummy I didn't print.

    I believe all the patterns are still posted - you can start it now

    Do we have all the blocks?? I have the center and 12 blocks which I think is everything. I think I just need to decide on how to set it together and if I'm using borders or not. I might just go with sashing between the blocks and do some type of outside border. I'm just about finished December so will post pictures of what I have so far. Am I thinking right?

    12 blocks sounds right, plus the large center block and the small ones. I'm going to see how many blocks I have. If we have them all, we can begin putting everything together.

    1- February - center Block
    2- March - Corner Rose - one of two named blocks
    3- April - Inner Border Corner and HeartWreath - second of two named blocks
    4 - May - inner Border Swag and "May" block
    5- June - "june" Block
    6- July - "July" Block
    7 - August - "August" Block
    September - no block due to hurricane
    9 - October - "October" Block
    10 - November - "November" Block
    11 - December - "December" Block

    The one month (was it March?) was the corner block which you were to make 4 of. This should total the 12 plus the center block. I think we just don't have an outer border or the swag yet. I've been trying to arrange my blocks and decide on the setting. I've just about decided to surround the center with the applique border and also have 2" sashing between the blocks. I'm trying to come up to the same size as the center block (which could be from 16-18"). I'm also going to do an outside appliqued border. Just trying to figure out the math. Anyone else put theirs together yet or have any ideas?

    Baltimore - with Borders

    I have attached a picture of what was posted earlier (I think around August?) which shows the Album with the borders on it. Perhaps that would help decide if people have everything. I think it is all been posted now but if anybody needs me to go through my EQ7 and fill in with some of the blocks for them, send me a PM and let me know.

    Can't wait to see them all put together.

    I just posted my pics of my Modern BAM BOM done to the outside border. It's under pictures, and Modern Baltimore Album Quilt from BOM. I am just stuck as to what to put on the outer border....
    There is no such thing as ugly fabric...just cut it smaller!

    another border for Baltimore

    Earlier in the postings, Peg used this version for a border.

    She also said in a posting:
    the borders are: inside border is 4" wide, outside border is 6" on the current photo, they can both be made wider to make the quilt bigger. Say in inside border can be 8" and the outside border 12". If you add another round of 12" blocks you can come to 72", appx.

    Don't know if it helps but if you are interested in the swag (vs. swag of flowers) let me know because I have that in EQ7 and could probably duplicate this border on the album.

    Has anyone finished their quilt? I would love to see pics of finished quilts. I haven't put my blocks together yet because I'm not sure if I want to add borders, etc. I'm concerned about Peg...hope she's okay.

    She hasn't answered any of my attempts to contact her so I am getting worried also. I haven't had time to work on it anymore. Actually I have to redo my blocks so will start from scratch. I hope somebody posts how they ended it. I'd love to see them.
    Happy Quilting!

    Lovely blocks! This is what is great about the group. You can change to what you want or what will work well with whatever you need it to. Can't wait to see the finished product.

    I agree...I know something is really wrong because Peg would have been in touch with us. Your blocks are really pretty...I love the colors and fabrics. I'm also looking forward to seeing others post their pics of finished quilts...or at least the finished quilt top...I'm still not sure how to put mine together.

    I have sent Peg 2 private messages and have had no reply. As others, I am getting concerned but have no other way to contact her. I am in the process of putting my blocks together and will try to post when I get it done.
