Well here is the centre of my Baltimore Christmas quilt. I have to put an inside border on ...it will be red, of course, probably about 2 inches wide then the outside border which will be 12.5 inches wide and will have scallops of holly leaves and stars...quite pretty actually . It will take a while to do but then I have lots of time. I don't plan on having this ready for Christmas this year and as far as quilting it goes there are 5 quilts in the queue......DH is wondering if I am going to hoard this one like I do with the rest of them...got a giggle out of that. Truth be told, with the exception of some extra small pieces I quite enjoyed the applique. I will always be grateful to Judy S....a quilt guild member that told me about back basting applique.....she sure opened a world of opportunity for me.
