Join us for a series of 6 classes that will introduce the fine
art of Baltimore Album Quilts. Each lesson presents an understanding
of Baltimore Album quilts and their design that was so popular
in the mid 1800's. Each lesson also teaches one complete block,
and then enriches that basic lesson with additional patterns
for more practice. As you complete a block each month your journey
toward producing your own quilt will be well on its way. The
journey will take you from papercuts to wreaths and lyres.
