I went back and forth on doing a quilt for the Quilt Alliance this year. Life is always busy all around and adding one more deadline felt like it could be too much. So, yesterday I decided to give it a go and get started. I had the idea and had found my inspiring quilt.
I am in awe when ever I see a Baltimore Album Quilt. The lovely applique, the variety of colors and the vast variety of block design. I even took a class in needle turn applique in the hopes of one day creating my own.
With the Quilt Alliance Inspired by challenge, I am creating a Baltimore Album Quilt my way, with raw edges, novelty yarn, hand and machine embroidery as well as a few beads.
Here are the first few blocks.....
And yikes, the deadline is June 1.......I will be a busy quilter the next few weeks.
