Still Another UFO

Recently Facebook bought up a memory of my progress on my Baltimore Quilt....an aged UFO.
I had made all kinds of promises but after sewing all the blocks together and sewing on the applique border I put it aside. So I took the hint from Facebook and started work again.....lots of marking and cutting out swag pieces and hearts.
Pinning and basting happened...
And before bed needleturn appliquing also began!
I am hoping that I can mantain the momentum and get this quilt finished! My Angel quilt in my previous post has it's flowers appliqued in place and awaiting a simple border to complete it.....trying not to feel too self righteous lol!
"Mum and Bub" are now finished which means that I can concentrate on the other version of this duo.
I seem to be stuck on Koalas and Major Mitchell Cockatoos at the moment. I keep finding more reference photos I took which I like....
I hope you are enjoying your day. I for one am counting my blessings...
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx

  9. Your quilt is gorgeous! I decided to try a Baltimore Album, but my blocks are much simpler than yours And I decided to just do 4 blocks. If I liked it, I would continue, and if I hated the process, at least I gave it a try. I LOVE it!!!! Now I want one as beautiful as yours.

  10. Such a beautiful Baltimore - I'm sure you are pleased to liberate it from it's UFO status. Although I've never made one, slow but steady and you can work away on that border when you are able. Love your Koalas too, you have a real talent indeed.
