Black BA Twin Block 19
The year was 2003. I had invited Elly Sienkiewicz to come give a series of classes during the summer of 2004 during the Clamshell Quilt Show. I wanted to have these two quilts finished by the time Elly arrived. I had 18 blocks finished on each of two Baltimore Album quilts. At this point, I knew that I wanted to limit the quilt sizes to 20 blocks on each quilt. That meant making two more blocks for each quilt. I arranged a 7 day time share stay in the Berkshires (Western Massachusetts). During this time share stay, I aimed to make the final 4 blocks to finish the quilts. This block and the 3 that will follow are those blocks that I feverishly finished that week.
