Friends of Baltimore progress.

At last I have finished the applique for this Friends of Baltimore block! I started this block many moths ago. Now for all the embellishment.

I have already decided which block I will be making next. This one won't have any flowers on it!
I found the tiny pieces something of a challenge to stitch, the reverse applique flowers were OK to make, but for some reason, I had a problem with those 3 red flowers with the petals layered one over the other!! I left 2 of them as the last pieces I appliqued!

I only managed 3 little houses this week. Another Rouenneries house and 2 others.

The fabric the house blocks are lying on is from a new fabric collection called Josephine by Petra Prins. There is a blue colourway for this design too. In my next post I will show the other prints I have....and the quilt they are intended for. :)

I have made some small progress with Trailing Vines and should have some photos to share in my next post too.

Lastly, it has been a while since I showed photos from my garden.......

Have a great weekend! :)


  1. Your harp block looks wonderful. I'm trying to decide whether I do the new pattern with wool felted?

  2. Love both projects and of course I love your pretty flowers!
    Hugs - Lurline♥

  3. As usual, you've given us a lot to look at, Miriam. Your Baltimore block is amazing! I love looking at your little houses, and it's nice to see the flowers in the middle of our winter.

  4. Such a pretty garden and I quite enjoy you're houses. So very homey. :) Your Baltimore Album block is truly amazing. Since I'm in the middle of class right now I have more of a sense for how difficult this work is. I think you did a fantastic job and my joy to you for a job well done. I smile your way my friend. I'm amazed!
