Early Baltimore blocks...

These were some very early blocks too.... this is when I realised that the reproduction fabrics looked fantastic, and gave richness to the blocks. I wanted to add a variety of colours - so this one has orange flowers. Too bad, I only used one green for the leaves. These days I would have used a variety of 8 fabrics for the leaves!!
I will have more to show you soon...


Shall I try to finish the Tree Of Life next?
Oh, I can't believe it!! *bounce bounce*. I am going madly to finish the Baltimore Album blocks (and border) because I want to start The Civil War Bride Quilt. And guess what? You never will! Three lovely ladies have started a blog dedicated to the quilt!!! Here it is. This is going to be wonderful!!!

The addition of the embroidery on the one block really adds to the design. Good job!
