Being a kind person, and not wanting me to feel too left out of the Dixie Diva's, my friend Pat Peter's sent me another picture of one of her more recently finished quilts.
Have I mentioned how prolific a quilter Pat is?
The intricacies of her work, all hand appliqued and hand quilted continue to amaze.
Baltimore Christmas by Pearl P. Pereira of P3 Designs is another show stopper.
70" X 70"
Pearl shares her feelings about Baltimore Christmas on her web site:
"Baltimore Album quilts were made in Baltimore between 1846 and 1852. Those beautiful quilts inspire me to create my Baltimore style quilt. When I think of Christmas I think of the Thomas Nast drawing of Santa. He "invented" the image popularly recognized as Santa Claus today. His Santa Claus was published for the 1862 Christmas season Harper's Weekly cover. It was both of these elements that inspired me to make my Baltimore Christmas quilt. The 24" center medallion Santa block is surrounded by twelve 12" album style blocks with holly and berry swag applique border."
