 Baltimore’s Cousin

During the 1840’s the ladies of Baltimore were making friendship album quilts with blocks 12 inches square or smaller.  Ladies in other areas of the country were making appliqué quilts with much larger (20 -30 inch) blocks with larger motifs.  From my books, I have drawn nine large blocks that have a traditional look and have special meaning from the Victorian era to create a full sized quilt.  During each class, we will investigate the history behind, and meaning of, these blocks and work on appliqué techniques for each one.  This will be an on-going class meeting once a month until all blocks and an appliquéd border are presented (10 months).

Full sized pattern will be provided each month for the printing cost of $5.50 each.

 

Class meets 2nd Thursdays from 10am to 12 noon

Cost = $80 for all 4 sessions (plus $5.50 for each month’s pattern)
