i have been itching to make another baltimore quilt.   i just got in the mail today, a book called baltimore's country cousins by susan mckelvey.   i think i will start this in the spring.

  the patterns are fairly easy, nothing too complicated.  there are examples in the book of how to use individual blocks; i.e., outlining them for framing, putting two or three together for  a table runner, wall hangings.   i think this would be a great project for beginners. a couple of the patterns are super cool.   the blocks are 12inches, but she has a sizing chart for enlarging them. one block, enlarged, could make a great center for a medallion quilt. 

  she has color considerations for each block on how to choose colors; not which colors, but how color works in the block.  like where to use large prints or stronger colors.  

is anyone interested in making this quilt as a group?   check  the book out at your LQS, see what you think.   i would be willing to lead this project if anyone is interested.     gini

OH Gini. I'm interested. I don't know if I should start another one though. I'll have to think about it. Will get the book though.

Gini, I have the book "Baltimore's Country Cousins" by Susan McKelvey.  Is this the same book or is there another with slightly different name?  I would be interested in doing this with a group if you get one going.

I thought it probably was, just wanted to be sure.  I've been sitting here looking at it.  It does have some nice blocks.  I had forgotten I had the book until you mentioned it.  Thanks for the reminder!  Now I remember why I bought it in the first place.

I would, Gini. 

I just looked on Amazon and the book is only $13.57.  The motifs are adorable.  I've wanted to make a Baltimore Album quilt for a long time and this way I'll have our group to do it with.  It's so much better to make a quilt with my QCA buddies!

Doesn't look like they have free shipping Gini. I wait to have $25 to purchase at Barnes and Noble too.

Would love to be in the group.  I have been looking at all the blocks from TAT and Snowbound.  I got all the patterns, but hav been to busy to do any of them.  I have decided that this next year I am going to take the time to feel the needle and thread going through fabric again!!!  My book is ordered...

"I cannot count my day complete until needle and thread meet."
