Reflections Of The South: A Touch Of Baltimore

Little Quilts' new collection, "A Touch of Baltimore" is a beautiful line that reflects the prints used in quilts from the mid-1800s. Henry Glass asked Little Quilts' designer Mary Ellen Von Holt to sit down and chat about the history of this era and the types of quilts that were made.

Little Quilts has designed a few patterns to accompany this lovely collection.  The first design is an easy pieced quilt that uses the eagle and floral panels. The result is a quilt that looks hand-appliqued without all of the work! The second design is a design for a glorious Baltimore Album quilt. Little Quilts used the prints from the "A Touch Of Baltimore" line in this beauty. [You can download them for free from the Henry Glass website by clicking here.]

Thank you Mary Ellen! The new line is gorgeous. Ask your local quilt shop for "A Touch Of Baltimore' so that you can make your very own Baltimore quilt. Fabrics will hit the store shelves August 2014.
