I like to piece blocks, create quilts, embroider, applique, knit and more.

I ran across a blog the other day that showed a Baltimore Album quilt. It made me yearn for this one I made in 2010. I'm not sure it was 'Baltimore' but I enjoyed learning the back basting method of applique and of course I loved the completed quilt. I donated it to a worthy cause. After all.......I could make another.
Last night I found a free pattern for an applique block. I'm including some of the steps and my first attempt at applique in a very long time.
The tracing is done on the back of the fabric. I started stitching it but I can see there's plenty of room for improvement. The stitches are too big and the curves aren't rounded enough. But it's a start.
