Baltimore Album~~~bitten by the bug!
I have had a blast perusing other quilters blogs about everything quilty and have decided I have been an absolute chicken in regards to applique. What am I thinking? I am not jealous...am I?...maybe overwhelmed, yeah, that's it. I am in awe when I see other renditions of Baltimore Album style quilts. Why am I procrastinating? I think I should just do it and quit whining.
I have TONS, no really, TONS of old quilt magazines hanging out at my house. I can't help myself. I have found that it may not appeal to me now, but maybe in a few years...I hate being a packrat. I have had this magazine around for ages. It's dated June 1989 and is filled with tulip patterns. I, however, fell in love with the cover quilt. It has gorgeous watermelon borders. I think I have the perfect fabrics for it. Mostly Moda fabrics and a yummy yellow Kona Cotton. I better get going...
Freezer paper, pens/pencils, pins, scissors....yep, wish me luck!
