Kris:

Hold on a second, the buggy barn pattern only is $120!!! That can't be right.

 

Kris I agree.  There is something wrong there.   You can get the whole kit for $270.

That one is pretty.  They say that the pattern has "full size blocks" to make an heirloom quilt.  Not sure what "full size" is, but if 4" is 18" x 22 " I would think it would be at least 8"

Emily:

Since so many like Baltimores, here is a Baltimore hanging.  The blocks are 4" but it can be enlarged, I'm sure.

so far i've counted 3 yeses on garden party, but a couple of definite noes on it.

whimsical garden is two votes

 i have 5 1/2 votes on a baltimore ,  but they all aren't for the same baltimore.  

how many of you are opposed to doing a baltimore?  if we decide to make a baltimore, do you care which one it is?   who all likes the halloween baltimore and  are their definite noes on that one?  

 i cannot find an advanced appliqued quilts without flowers.  sorry to the non-flower person.   would you like me to look for an autumn baltimore without flowers.  hmmm i think i have a book for that.  it might be fun to design one, too.   that might be fun, to have each of us design a block for fall.  i wouldn't be that hard.

who would be interested in an autumn baltimore? 

so what i'm hearing is more people would like to do a baltimore or baltimore style quilt.  is that right?

I am a yes on the Baltimore.  I like the one I sent (the red and green one) and designing one would be a lot of fun too - to see what we all come up with.

that sent me off on a hunt,  i even forgot to post the last post up above.   i started a fall baltimore.  i have two blocks done.   i have no idea where i got the patterns for the two blocks i've finished, but i have a picture of Autumn Bounty,    by Carolyn Susac, featured in the november 1998 QNM.  i used this to inspire me.  must not have worked, i only got to two blocks.  i will try to get a picture of the picture when i get home and see if anyone is interested in this.   a lot of the patterens  look like they are adapted from elly sienkiewicz patterns done in fall colors.   well, duh, once  i read further, they are adaptations of elly's patterns.

A Little Bit of Baltimore  by Carolyn Susac

 

it was this quilt done in rich fall colors, same swag,

In reading your post again, I like the idea of an autumn Baltimore too.  But I have a definite NO on the Halloween one, Whimsical Garden and Garden Party.  And who is the 1/2 vote?

I have done 3 Baltimores which included 10 of the squares you have in that picture.  And I will say this.....3 of those I have done are real doozies.  The grapes took me one whole summer.  Some of the flowers are three dimensional and I did the vase one with ruched flowers.  Very painstaking.  I don't think I would care to do them again.  I opt for easier.  I am an old lady now and would like to have a quilt done in my lifetime.   And you're right, Gini.  It is Elly Sienkewicz.  This is my first quilt and first Baltimore.
