Ultimate UFO

This UFO will be with me a while. I took a year-long
class in 2004 from a guild member who is an amazing
quilter. She designed this beautiful Baltimore Album/
Little Brown Bird-ish quilt with the cutest 3-D flowers.
I am from Baltimore, hun, (it's a Baltimore thing) so I
knew when I started quilting in 1999 and became aware
of Baltimore Album quilts,that I was destined to make
one. The only problem was that I had no desire to make
one in Red and Green. This one has a very pale sky blue
background and will look kind of pastel-ly. The top
block is the first one and I can see now that my applique
skills were not as good as they are now. The little
circles are stuffed and I have to tell you that the
embroidery part is not my favorite. And dontcha just
love those cute daisies! They are so easy!
I have 8 blocks done so will show more later.

Until next time...

What gorgeous blocks. Does the designer sell the patterns?
