Fierce Chain Pattern Corrections

On the background cutting instructions for the block, the first two lines should read: (2) 2½” squares for piece C (1) 3” square for piece B Note that the C and B labels were switched and you should cut (2) 2½” squares per block. That means you will have (18) 2½” background squares total for

16th and Baltimore

I have always wanted to do a Baltimore Album quilt. They are so pretty and intricate and classic works of quilt art. But the classic part was also the sticking part for me. The original Baltimore Album quilts exist in a very small period of time in a very localized place, which also means that

After our block swap with Crafthouse in Lincoln last year, we’ve had our Exhibit quilt on the brain. It only made sense that the first fierce quilt we tackled was Fierce Exhibit. It’s a good graphic pattern that doesn’t lose any of its wow factor when you smoosh the size, and that chunky sashing lets you
