    Here it is! This is the new Baltimore Album BOM created in EQ. Each month, on the 8th, a new block will be available for download.

    For those who do not have EQ, there will be a PATTERN for DOWNLOAD.

    Basics:
    1) quilt measures 60" square
    2) club will run for 15 months, there are 13 blocks and the border.
    3) fabric requirements for entire quilt are;
    background, 4 yards of a neutral
    A)dark red, med red, lite red, ( a mottled batik with all 3 would work great, it give good color variance) 2-1/2 yards total
    B)dark green, med green, lite green (same here ) 2-1/2 yards total
    C)drk gold, lite gold (same here) 1-1/2 yard total
    D) brown, fat quarter
    E) med blue, fat quarter
    F) med violet, fat quarter

    This quilt can be done either by hand methods or machine.
    If you are going to fuse the motifs, remember to reverse the pattern for tracing.

    Check out the applique section for tuitorials, there are some good methods and ideas posted.

    This a a FREE club!
    Any questions, either post on the board or send me a PM

    I'd like to participate. I see you are in NJ -- I am originally from NJ and get back there several times a year to visit family. Perhaps we can get together on one of those trips if you are not too far away. Where is Vernon? I am from Central Jersey, 50 miles west of New York City. Nancy T, Menomonee Falls WI

    Under the Block of the Month and Week section, bookmark it so it's easy for you to call up each month. :-D

    Oh, it's here on the board. I thought you were telling us about one that was offsite.

    You have two other choices: fuse it and then stitch around the pieces or do it in wool and do a hand buttonhole stitch. Either way it would be beautiful.

    Thanks. I'll check it out. I never give up though. One of these days I will produce a piece that I like with needleturn.

    I have always wanted to try a Baltimore block, so I am in negotiations with my schedule to squeeze time for this BOM. It looks gorgeous.

    Yes, yes, yes! I'm with you and the beautiful Baltimore Album Block of the Month. Like so many other QB members, I've always wanted to make a BA and having one available on the Quilting Board and FREE is almost too good to be true. Thank you qal288 for spearheading this project. Belles
