Baltimore Garden

Spring has arrived and my yard has kept me busy the last couple of weeks. I have been stitching a few klosjes in the evenings and finished a couple of miniatures for the wall.  But, soon summer will arrive and I find it too warm in the summer to quilt. So during the summer, I usually do some machine piecing or work on an applique project.  This year I am starting Baltimore Garden. The pattern is by Barbara Burnham and is a reproduction of MEC 1848, an antique quilt that came from an estate in Virginia Beach, Virginia. I will be sticking with tradition and using red and green and yellow fabrics.

The quilt is made up of twenty five blocks and a double swag border, so this one will take awhile.  I quilt for me, so there is no deadline or goal, just enjoying the process and hopefully ending up with a gorgeous quilt.


  1. Such a beautiful pattern - looking forward to seeing your progress!
