Hall of Fame Winner

First place: Baltimore Blooms Quilt by Deborah Dorward
When Deborah Dorward was designing this quilt, she took inspiration from antique appliqué and Baltimore quilts. Here is a selection of her favourite blocks, some with a twist and some more traditional. There are so many beautiful flowers on old quilts and this one pays homage to the many different blooms.
