Block 11 Baltimore Album Quilt

I tried something new with this block. The cornucopia just looked too flat so I decided to do some trupunto which is really just putting stuffing in something. I used roving which I have lots of right now.

We have one more block to do . I'm glad I made this quilt but doubt I will do another one.

Once the 12th block is done then I'll put it together and decide who will quilt it. The tradition is that you have to hand quilt your own, but I just don't have the patience or the good stitching for that. I'll probably either send it to an Amish community for hand quilting or have someone local machine quilt it.

Very nice. I never learned to quilt- wish I had. My Nanny & my Great-Granny both quilted (frames hanging from the ceiling & all) when I was a kid. It was such fun to watch them with all the beautiful pieces of material from dresses, etc. I still have two of the quilts they made. In fact one is on my bed now.

Have a wonderful weekend.

blessed be...
