This is a Baltimore Album style quilt that's a free block of the month from Sentimental Stitches and the Dear Jane blog. Is anyone else planning on doing this?? I'd like some company that I "know"!

B. Biggs quilt

I've got the center cut and pinned. I'm preparing to baste and then do the needle turn method on it. I practiced yesterday on two of the Dear Jane blocks...my first attempts. Not perfect, but reasonable...

Not me, I'm afraid, Jan, I don't have the patience.

Not me. I don't like that style quilt so I'd never make it to the end of the project. Let us know how you're doing. We'll hold you accountable!

Not me. I am not so adventurous as you are. I think the project is lovely. What fabrics have you chosen for it?

That would be lovely in Hawaii fabrics. Now, stop tempting me, will you???

I really enjoy quilting. I love to play with fabrics, colors and pictures. I recently discovered how much fun applique can be. As I love making pictures, landscape quilting can be challenging, but seeing the picture come to life is so rewarding.

I've been hemming and hawing for a couple of weeks, but after seeing people mention it here, I've decided to go ahead and take the plunge!

I am thinking of getting one green to use across all of the blocks, but then instead of buying a specific red trying to use up items in my stash... i own a lot of blue. a lot. of. blue. so maybe i'll give that a try with a few blocks and see how it looks.

It's beautiful. I love appliqué quilts. But the thought of making one... not so much :)

Great!!! Blue would look good....some of the finished blocks have been shown on the Yahoo group and there are several who are doing blues. I like your idea of using the same green throughout.

I was thinking of doing the reds and greens throughout, but I saw a similair quilt on a blog that used yellows, pinks, and blues along with the red. It looked great and now I'm undecided.

Today, I will try the applique...there are a lot of points on that block!!

Come on Learn!! Hawaii fabrics would be great and you'd end up with something unique!!

Patience???? It's only one block a month!! Some are finished with theirs already...Do you all have other plans for the next two years???

I've worked up my nerve and after some minimal houskeeping, I'll start the handsewing....

I have not tried applique yet. The sew along starts next month.
It is tempting to me, though.

Did you say 2 Years?

The last pattern is scheduled to be published February 1, 2016. By then, I figure I'll be an expert at needle turn applique and will redo this first block! Or I'll have a new pillow for the couch.

Learn...there are many types of learning. We had a discussion about this on the Stash thread a while back. Some really wanted to progress in stages, learning one thing more with each project. I'm more adventurous (or foolish). I see something and want it...then I figure out how to do it. This has lead to some epic fails, but I've learned alot also. I posted a link to a blog that gives very clear instructions on how to do this applique, so I'm plunging in.
Cat will be teaching raw edge applique, but when I looked at this pattern, I know that I can't control my machines well enough for all the points, so I'm handstitching.
