Last set of blocks and a medallion

The center part of my Baltimore style quilt is this medallion which came from McCall’s Quilting, April 2001 magazine. I love the whole design of the medallion .... so did not change a thing! :o) Lots and lots of applique and hand quilting.
This is the last grouping of blocks from my Baltimore style quilt.

My source for these blocks came from:

Top – Circle of Grapes – Conway Album (I’m Not From Baltimore) book
Middle – Night and Noon – Quilter’s Cache.com (the center of the block was changed by adding an appliqué motif Celestial from Quiltmaker.com)
Bottom – Tulip Scroll – Appliqué Quilts, magazine #32
We had a good Christmas and are glad to be home, though. This year, our family was scattered and we didn't have the usual visits. Nonetheless, we talked by telephone and touched base with all.
Our snow is almost gone with all the rainfall that we have had the last few days. Today, it is very windy and a limb on one of our cedar trees broke off leaving quite a nasty gash. The tree will probably have to come down. Oh well ......

That looks fabulous in the centre of those colourful blocks! I think I'd like to steal that idea and do something similar.
