    hmseen, I'm with Bonnie, give it a try. Start with one block and see how it goes, and don't feel you have to use batiks, use what's in your stash, as long as the fabrics blend together, it will work.

    You could always just make it a scrappy quilt. The flowers can be different colors for instance as well as the buds/berries. No two leaves are exactly alike so don't make them alike. Remember that also when your leaves, if they are like mine, don't always come out the same way twice. :)

    Hi Peg

    Thanks for the encouragement again. This is a great group...always giving encouragement to beginners like me to dunk my head into the water.... I will check out my stash tonight and see what I've got.

    On the first page, right after the fabric photos, there is a download for EQ, click and it will automatically open in EQ. Then save it in the program.

    I have always admired the Baltimore style quilts but have been too overwhelmed by them to even attempt one. Thank you for all your work and encouragement, I am going to try to make this ... sounds like others are nervous but are willing to give it a try. So I'm off to get my materials!! I look forward to the challenge!

    Thanks everyone, I have enjoyed putting this together. I remember more than 25years ago when I took my 1st. Applique class, I was so overwhelmed, sure I couldn't do It! But, once I started, I found a new love, and with each block became better & more proficent. I wish that for all who attempt this quilt.

    I'm so excited to get my fabrics so I can start this. When I started quilting I saw a beautiful Baltimore style quilt that our guild ladies did for the opportunity quilt, and I thought "I will NEVER be able to do something like that". But if I do machine applique I should be fine and get through this.
