The free pattern for the Baltimore Garden Quilt from Handblessings has arrived! The chart is stitched on 28 count coffee Jobelan, which is on order, and uses Gentle Art threads: Spring Grass (3); Red Plum (2); Pine; Cherry Wine; Autumn Leaves; Ohio Lemon Pie; Purple Iris; and Berry Cobbler.
Just a little history on this type of quilt: The Baltimore Quilt applique designs appeared in the 1840's. Unlike the usual scrap quilts, these were made with mostly new material. Each block was completed and signed and then the blocks would be sewn together to create the large quilt.
This Baltimore Garden Quilt is accented with a charm pack but the piece can be considered complete without charms. The pack is available for $14.25 and we have a few available.
Call or email me to be put on the list for this latest free pattern from Handblessings.
