Baltimore Twins--A Study in Color and Early Technique
Earlier, I talked about individual blocks in my early Baltimore Album applique lessons. The quilt with the black background was my first ever quilt. The one with the light background was my second quilt. One learns as one practices the techniques. After making several hundred reverse applique teardrops, I decided that wouldn't be the way to go on the 2nd quilt. One can learn which colors are too dominant and which did not offer enough contrast. Rather than re-do some of the blocks, I put them all together and labeled these my "Learning Quilt #1" and "Learning Quilt #2".
