Quilts in the Baltimore Manner

If there was one exhibit I could go to this year it would be to Colonial Williamsburg and the Quilts in the Baltimore Manner exhibition.

There are some pictures of the gallery on the Quaker Quilts blog

and here.

Barbara Brackman has some great closeups from the exhibit on her blog

Barbara has focused on the detail of the applique and the stitching around each shape.  We usually try our best to hide the stitching but many of the quilters here used the stitching as embroidery to add to the design.
