Ms MoomMist~

Your Baltimore Album is beautiful. I'm always drawn to this quilt when I see it because it is awe inspiring. The amount of applique and hand work is way above my head. I appreciate so much those of you who do it and do it so beautifully.

I sure did, lol... Kind of new posting here, but this sounded like a good place to start again!

Been creating my own baby girl quilt, meaning, not following any set pattern, just figure it out as I go. The front side is D9P, with narrow sashing between each block. Blocks are on point, then corners filled in with a row of strips pointing inward, towards center of quilt. Then, in two corners, I appliqued a few little flowers, so it's basically done. Started building the back, but in reality, it's so pretty, it may be it's own quilt top, lol. Did mostly 6.5in star blocks for the back & going to put them on point too, so now I have to figure out the triangle corners, fill them with something pretty. I am mostly doing this in pink, with some other pastels thrown in on the front side, but back is mainly pinks & a little while. Been a fun journey, & looking forward to a finish, soon!

Thank you all for you wonderful comments. Playing with quilting has been a love of mine all my life. I remember a blanket stitch butterfly quilt that my grandmother made for my mother when I was very young. I have no idea what ever happened to it, but the memories are still there. My first project was a "big" Dresden Plate with fabric I got from WT Grant company and back then  I tried to applique' it on the machine Oh My. There were no wonderful battings around then so I used a flannel sheet. It was a nightmare, however, my boys loved it. I'm truly thankful and even in awe about all the wonderful quilting supplies and techniques we now have and nobody should fear to do what they desire with this great pastime.  Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

xoxoxo,

I almost didn't get any quilting done today, but when I sat in my chair this evening I picked up my applique project.  It's a kitty block.  I didn't post yesterday, but I did finish four blocks for my Farmer's Wife Sampler.

Grandma Sal

Your blocks are gorgeous.  I just recently bought that book.  It may very well be my next sampler quilt.

Ms MoomMist:
Kris, You can copy on freezer paper with your printer. Yes, I've done that. You just need to watch and make sure that your settings are for 'other' and keep an eye on it so that it doesn't jam up.

MoomMist,

I do this whenever I can. If I have the pattern on my computer I can print directly onto the paper. I have a project with really large pieces so I can't escape tracing. I might need to hire a tracer.

Ms MoomMist:
Here is a picture of my Baltimore Album Sampler that I started in 2007

I love it. I look forward to seeing the finished product.

Ms MoomMist:
My sister-in-law had never quilted before, and this is what I started her on, oops but her's is beautiful

LOL. The project I selected for my first attempt is by no means a beginner pattern but I love it. I needed to practice to find the method I like best. So far I like needle turn best. I like to iron the freezer paper on top. I still have trouble getting pointy points but Gini has given me lots of useful tips to get them. My second favourite method is to put the freezer paper on the wrong side and then use the iron to turn the edges under. It would be my first choice but the work with the iron is tedious and difficult with small pieces.

Very nice blocks Grandma Sal. I like the Farmer's Wife quilt. I don't have the book but I have the CD to use with EQ7.

Hey Nana, maybe we could do this one together .

My in-laws left Sunday evening (boo hoo). After they left I worked on my hand made gift for the secret santa swap while I watched football. My beloved Colts lost to the stinky Patriots. It was a good game though.
