My Baltimore Album Style

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I like to incorporate traditional elements of quilting with a contemporary interpretation in my work. I started quilting over 20 years ago, and have admired the beauty and design of the traditional Baltimore Album Quilts always day dreaming that someday, maybe, I would create one. With the announcement of the Inspired By contest, I knew I had to give it a go and create a Baltimore Album Quilt my way. My entry was created using traditional Baltimore Album quilt block designs with raw edge applique, machine and hand embroidery stitches, highlighted with beads and novelty fibers. What advice would you give someone starting this project? This quilt was made for the 2014 Quilt Alliance Inspired By Contest and will be auctioned off later this year to support the fantastic organization.
