top done!

well the past few posts have been sparse but here I am with another post already.
that's because my baltimore blocks are a completed top! Hooray!
I am afraid my photos leave something to be desired but I was keen as mustard to take a pic and share.
I am very happy with the result. As always there are things I could have done better but that's the way the cookie crumbles! Overall I Love it. It has been a learning curve and I am so happy I did the classes.

Now I can get back to something new or something in the works? decisions, decisions.........
have a great sunday
Marina

Oh, it's a beauty Marina. And I wouldn't worry about those few things that you could have done differently - think of them as the fingerprint for this particular quilt. Every quilt has them and it's part of the charm of the craft.

Josie said...

Wow... you must be chuffed to bits with your Baltimore. It's gorgeous and so beautifully stitched. Your swags look great. Clever girl! Are you going to hand quilt it? Loved the crochet rug in your last post too... your friend will love it too. Now.... I'm waiting to watch you hand quilt Sweet William and maybe pretend I made mine too..... looking very shamefaced here.
Whatever you choose to do next.... have fun with it....xxxx
