More Red and Green....
I'm working up to starting a Baltimore. It's taking years ;-)
Not committing - stashing fabrics, buying books and patterns, studying....
I took a hand applique class and completed this little four block quilt several years ago... Mary Deeney was a pivotal teacher in my applique skills.
Mary's an award winning hand quilter. Mary's version of Pat Cox's "The Gift" won a 1st Place Prize at the American Quilter's Society Show (Paducah) in 2002.

She has the 'Sweet Baby Baltimore' pattern available (and others) on her website.
|Sweet Baby Baltimore|
It is hand applique and machine quilted.
The designs are very classic and we built skills as we went through each lesson over the weekly sessions of the course.
The binding is red, with a green fabric insert. Between the red and green is a line of yellow hand embroidery.

How can I tell?
I read about them HERE.
From the thread spool, the parts are numbered so to thread it...just follow the numbers! It clamps to the table so if you really get 'ta crankin' it stays put.
The box included the cloth guide, clamp, box and manual.
The manual has copyright dates of 1922, 1936 and 1948.
The box says No. 20, the manual says 20-10
It has the all black 7 spoke hand wheel.
I have another one - in a future post I'll show the two side by side.
I love the writing on the box assuring me ...
"A REAL SEWING MACHINE - NOT A TOY"
Maybe I should make a little chain stitched doll quilt!
