Better late than never...

When I was putting together my yearly review of the things I quilted, I realized that I never shared pictures of my finished Baltimore Halloween top.  I'm surprised I let that slip by considering I've been appliqueing it for over 3 years!  I'm going to guess I was planning to immediately quilt it and thought I'd share pictures once it was completely finished.  But as often happens, plans change and the top is sitting off in a pile still waiting it's turn.

Baltimore Halloween Quilt Top
The pattern is Baltimore Halloween by P3 Designs.  (I also have her Baltimore Christmas pattern, but haven't started on it yet!)  I did this one using hand applique.

It was hard to get a good picture of this quilt because there are so many little pieces to each applique block.  If you're interested, I shared close up pictures of the individual blocks here and here.  And here's a picture of the bats in the outer border.  I probably spent close to 100 hours appliqueing all of them.

I really am hopeful that I'll have it quilted by Halloween this year.  Then again, I say that every year!

This is just a funny picture I took of Sam recently.  For some reason, she was really interested in the camera!

Until later...

A gentle answer deflects anger, but harsh words make tempers flare. 
Proverbs 15:1 (NLT)


  1. Very impressive! I love the bats all around the border. I have seen this pattern, but have not been tempted to do all that work for Halloween, but yours is so gorgeous!

  2. That is beautiful! You did a great gob on all the tiny pieces!
