I started this Baltimore Album quilt in a year long class with Mimi Dietrich back in 1992. I lived in Baltimore so it seemed like the right thing to do!
Anyway, over the course of a year my fabric choices changed significantly and after my "real" quilt was finished I had almost a dozen blocks that didn't make the cut. They traveled with me for many years.
Last year when I was packing to move I debated letting them go but instead they went to the top of the "to-do" list! This is hand appliqued, hand and machine pieced, and hand quilted.
