Applique Flower Album Quilt

Traditional Baltimore Album quilts are very beautiful, but demand a lot of time, skill and patience since each block has to be unique. Machine embroidery makes the process much easier.

Our very simple quilt features the Applique Flower Blocks. It's finished size is about 32" x 38".

You will need to prepare the blocks as described in the Applique Flower Blocks Instructions.

Trim each block to the size you need. We used the designs for a large (5" x 7") hoop and trimmed the blocks to 11 1/2" x 11 1/2" size. After sewing with a seam allowance of 1/4", the finished size of the blocks became 11" x 11".

For the green border, we cut 2 strips measuring 2 1/2" x 33 1/2" and 2 strips measuring 2 1/2" x 27 1/2".

For the yellow border, we cut 2 strips measuring 2 1/2 x 38 1/2" and 2 strips measuring 2 1/2" x 32 1/2".

Assembling the Top

Sew the blocks into 3 pairs. Each pair is a row.
Sew all rows together.

Sew the green 2 1/2" x 33 1/2" strips to the left and the right sides.
Sew the green 2 1/2" x 27 1/2" strips to the upper and lower sides.

Sew the yellow 2 1/2" x 38 1/2" strips to the left and right sides.
Sew the yellow 2 1/2" x 32 1/2" strips to the upper and lower sides.

Quilting:

Now place the backing on a flat surface (table) face down. Cover with batting. Spread your working piece over it.

Pin all three layers together with 1" pins and start quilting. We quilted around the applique and made stippling all over the quilt.

After the quilting is finished, press the work with heavy steam and square the work -- all corners should be 90 degrees and opposite sides should be of the same length.

Finish the raw edges with the binding.

The quilt is ready. Enjoy!

Happy Stitching!
