Sew Many Projects, So Little Time

This is showcase of my projects in various stages.

Baltimore's Country Cousins

This is my first full appliqué quilt. I've done a block or two in other projects but nothing like this. I'm using a gingham background with batiks. These are the first nine blocks and I'm currently working on the tenth block. The patterns come from the book "Baltimore's County Cousins" by Susan McKelvey.

kris, this is beautiful.   your colors all work great together.   look at the top center block.   if you could add that deep red to one or two other blocks in like amounts,  it will balance it beautifully. and perhaps just a tad more of the light blue in the fountain.  your colors are so, oooh, i can't think of the right word,  they jump right off the screen.  nice job.

Thanks everyone.

Gini, I've tried to use that red again but it hasn't seemed right yet. Hopefully the next couple will have the perfect spot.
