Another set of blocks

These are from my Baltimore style quilt which I will eventually show you the whole quilt. I actually prefer to see little bits at a time to appreciate the whole quilt and this way you can see a bit more of the detail that was so painstakingly done.

My source for these blocks came from:

TopHearts All Around – McCall’s Quilting magazine, June 2001 issue
MiddleOak Laurel – McCall’s Quilting magazine, August 2001 issue
BottomApple Glory – McCall’s Quilting magazine, August 2001 issue

There is a lot of appliqué and hand quilting in these blocks.

Enjoy!

They're beautiful. I was so disappointed when I clicked to enlarge, (for a close up view) the picture stayed small.

I love these all but I was caught by the use of the different blues in the top block. An eye-catching effect.

So talented!

I just opened my yahoo mail and found you sent me enlargements of these photos. Thank-you for this as they are beautiful. I kept going back to the first one, as the hearts show up everywhere, almost like an "Eye Spy" quilt. Stunning. (Note: You can change your camera settings which will permit enlargements when photos are double clicked.)
