I finally have internet tonight and catching up on blogs - I love this block and yes well worth the extra effort put into it. I don't remember have you shown what the whole quilt will be like or are you creating as you go?
If you google Baltimore Garden I am sure a picture of the quilt will come up, Karen. Barbara Burnham developed the pattern from an antique quilt that was originally made by someone whos initials were MEC. It has twenty five blocks which are surrounded by a double swag border.
Stunning block. Well worth all the work involved
Thanks Gina, It has been a joy to work on this quilt.
AMAZING! it is beautiful I have enjoyed seeing all your blocks so much….Kathie
I had been thinking lately, all this red and green is probably starting to get boring. But for me, I can never get enough. I guess that Is a good thing cause this one has been two years in the making so far. Thanks for taking the time to comment, I won't feel as bad about posting yet another block.
what a pretty block. reminds me of a whig rose - love the buds.
Thanks Barb, At first, I struggled to applique these, but I have made so many throughout the quilt that I look forward to them now.
Wow, what a lot of work has gone into that block ... but from my vantage point, it was oh so worth it! Gorgeous, simply gorgeous!
Thanks Kathy! This one did have a lot of pieces and layers. I am pleased with how it turned out! I think I will take a break before I start the next one.
Another gorgeous block!!
Using the different green fabrics gives your block so much interest. I took a quilt class early on that taught it was so much more interesting to use a variety of shades and pattern within.
I agree and I hate worrying about having enough fabric when I choose just one. I went out to my garden to decide the color green I wanted to use and decided if God could use a variety why couldn't I. Thanks for stopping by!
Amazing! That block is gorgeous. Well worth the effort I think.
Deb, I must admit I am happy to be this far along. Each block is a major project in this quilt. But the end is almost here, then on ward to the borders.
Absolutely beautiful. It has so much interest and movement. Definitely worth all of your careful stitching.
It's a really beautiful block, Carla. And you have done a great job on all those tight curves! Well worth the effort, I say!
Thanks Monica! Those tight curves were so hard when I first was learning to do needle turn. They are still a challenge but I think I am winning the battle.
This is gorgeous ! Yes it looks as if it would take a long time to complete! :)
I love it and I love all your greens!
