Baltimore Applique Society - Lady of Victory quilt


Isn't this quilt gorgeous?  It is the new opportunity quilt from the Baltimore Applique Society.  It is hand appliqued and hand quilted.  It is a replica of an original album quilt owned by Mary Koval and the fabrics are by Windham reproduced from the original quilt's fabrics.  Windham did a fantastic job on the reproductions and because the original quilt is in such wonderful shape this replica really has the look of the original.  I particularly like the way the background fabric looks with the bright appliques.  My block is hard to see since it has white roses on a light background but it is third row down and second from the left.  I blogged about it here.  Below is a picture of my block contribution when it was almost finished.  The BAS members appliqued the blocks and then one single member added all of the embroidery embellishments.  That's the touch that made the quilt really come alive.


Information about tickets will be sent to BAS members in the upcoming newsletter and should be on the website soon, too.  There are patterns available on the BAS website if you think you might want to make one of your own Lady of Victory quilts.  Email me if you do decide to make one.  I had my patterns out this weekend and would like to get started on my own version once I find the right background.  We can cheer each other on.

That is gorgeous. Love this style of quilt, but applique hasn't been my friend, so I will not be making one. I will enjoy watching your progress and cheering for you. : )

The corner blocks must have been difficult to applique. All those narrow spines or limbs. Whatever you call them.

The quilt turned out so nice. I do love applique but I haven't aspired to do a Baltimore Album quilt yet. I'll be looking forward to seeing your progress.
