My design wall is empty!  I will not begin another project until the quilting is done on my Baltimore quilt!  I didn't get much done yesterday, as our power was "out" from 2 - 6:30 pm - wind damage from the edge of Irene.
 This is the quilt that was on my table, under the baked goodies - I finally took its picture!  It was the first hand appliqued quilt that I ever made.  I bought the pattern from a quilt shop in Orlando (now closed) that specialized in historical reproduction and wool fabric.  I can't find the pattern to give credit to the designer......  I use the quilt as a table cover during the fall and winter months, removing it when using the table!
 This quilt is used on my table during the spring/summer months.  Again - I have no idea what pattern I used.  I remember seeing the pattern in a magazine, and when I went to the fabric store, I found a great overall flowered print and a matching stripe - both required for the pattern.  The background was supposed to be a stripe, but as I couldn't find one, I used a solid blue and quilted the lines with a variegated blue thread.
I'm heading off to machine quilt all day!  Check out Judy's blog to see what others are working on this week!


  1. Have fun quilting your Baltimore quilt today! It is beautiful.

  2. The quilting is my favorite part and you have done a lovely job on all parts of your quilts. Very pretty!

  3. Your table really gets dressed up nice. Hope you had a good quilting day. I am off to applique, piece, and design. I just can't stick with one thing for too long. ;)


Thank you. Your comments are important to me.
