Wool Baltimore Album

A friend of mine from Quincy sent this one--although since Lynn is living in Tennessee now, I guess I have to say my friend from Tennessee sent it. The combo of the wool on the black makes this one awesome Baltimore Album! Unfortunately, I don't have the best set up for photographing the entire quilt, so this pic does not do it justice!!

 You'll notice that some of these pics, like the one below, looks to be at an odd angle. It is--I took the pic while the quilt was still loaded and used my quilting light (just made by my husband) to shadow the picture. Quilting black on black is enough to make your eyes go buggy, so Dennis made this light much the same as Jamie Wallen's tute. What a livesaver!!

When I have a quilt with so many individual appliqued blocks, I try to use several designs when quilting them. I usually stick to three and use them interchangeably to add interest and yet keep the continuity. This one has a bit of pebbling and McTavishing.

 This one is just echoed around the design, and echoed around the design, and echoed around the design, and.....you get the idea!!

 Some straight lines with the pebbles here.

More pebbles and a bit of echoing.

More pebbles and McTavishing....

And finally a couple pics that show the border design.

Hope you enjoyed the pics as much as I enjoyed the quilting!!
