Baltimore Album Baltimore!

Back from a conference in Baltimore and took a few hours to hike up to the Maryland Historical Society Museum that has several Baltimore Album and other quilts in addition to a large array of paintings and historical pieces. They had several quilts on display. This pieced and appliqued one was my favorite (although not in the traditional Baltimore style). They have a very nice online gallery that includes more than what was on display as they rotate the display quilts for preservation purposes. Click the logo to visit take a quilt tour. Now back to the dreaded writing...

Spring Mini-quilt Blog Swap - Received!

Isn't this lovely! My swap partner, Ana from Portugal sent it and I am just now getting a photo posted. What a fun experience to participate in this project. You might want to try it! Michele Foster (aka Mishka) is the fabulous host of the Quilting Gallery where you will find the swap projects and LOTS of other interesting stuff. It is a great way to get blogging! She is so organized and creative! I have become a big fan in just a few months. Go and visit! and while you are at it consider challenging yourself to do a Summer mini-quilt swap and meet other lovely quilters from around the world!! Here is the link to summer swap.
Don't forget to go by and see my swap partner - Ana's blog in Portugal...and tell her what a nice job she did on this Spring min-quilt swap!
Happy Quilting to all!
