This stunning design, inspired by an 1847 Baltimore Brides Quilt, has been adapted to wool by Jackie Aspessos of Lakeview Primitives. This gorgeous reproduction quilt comes in 2 version — either flannel and wool or Matka Silk and wool — both beautiful combinations.  The background fabric (in either black or ivory, and flannel or Silk) are striking backdrops for the motifs that are hand-dyed wool applique. The 12 block quilt measures 68″ x 83″. This is the perfect heirloom that you can give that special bride in your life.

If you have ever been inspired to make a quilt that will be handed down from generation to generation, this is where you can begin. There is no reason to be intimidated by this beautiful quilt, each block is broken down into easy to follow directions. Block of the month kits offer fabrics and supplies in a convenient monthly shipment. With a once a month program you will find a single block becomes a

manageable project to complete. Soon you will find you have it all done with no stress or guilt that can accompany unfinished projects. You can sit back and admire your work. Here you will have the opportunity to applique and quilt with wools or silks that you might not have tried, if you shopped at you average quilt shop.

Step up your quilting skills with “Baltimore Brides” and create a family heirloom.
