NOTE: This design will be retired very soon!
Baltimore Quilt Album blocks were the inspiration for this wedding sampler. When quilted they are appliqued, which is truly beautiful. They vary according to the quilt maker. This is my adaptation of one of the many Baltimore Quilt Album blocks. This design could be used to make a sampler as shown, a ring bearer pillow or any of the several “Be Creative” ideas included in the chart.
DESIGN SIZE: 200 X 200 stitches
FABRIC: 36 ct Cream Linen
NOTE: You can adapt the size of the finished piece, by changing the count of the linen used. AIDA may also be used.
FLOSS: DMC 221, 223, 224, 225, 500, 502, 3721, 3722, 3813, 5200 (or any very white floss) Feel free to change the colors as desired--just be sure you have color tones in the same family so the "gingham" fabric look with show in the finished piece.
NOTE: DMC #500 was used for ALL backstitching, except the "stems" in the large flowers as noted in chart.
