Baltimore Appliqué Showstoppers

Last month, when Kara was here to teach at the Academy of Appliqué, we spent a day at the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival in Hampton, Virginia. That has been our routine for the past few years, but we were especially eager to go this year to see the special exhibit by the Baltimore Appliqué Society (BAS). And not just because our Fairy Tale Album was part of the exhibit; we knew what a treat it is to see the work of our fellow appliqué-ers in BAS! And we were not disappointed. Here is the exhibit for you to enjoy.

We so enjoy watching people study our Fairy Tale Album and discover the details of the various stories!

Kara and I (Teri) feel that it is quite a privilege to belong to such a wonderful organization, filled with talented people who share our passion for appliqué. We are endlessly inspired by the work we see—at an exhibit like this, at meetings, or in the monthly newsletter. And our members are not only local to Baltimore! Quilts were sent from Rhode Island and Hawaii for this exhibit. Perhaps you would like to see what the Baltimore Appliqué Society is all about. Visit their web site to learn more:

We hope you were just as inspired as we were. Let's appliqué!


  1. WOW! What a treat to see all these quilts. Thank you.

  2. All I can say is "WOW"! What lovely treasures. Your quilt looked lovely in its natural habitat!

    1. It was a great exhibit of quilts; and thanks! Those fairy tales felt right at home surrounded by its Baltimore friends.

  3. Just lovely. You and Kara captured the spirit of BAS!
