Challenge: Re-imagining a Baltimore block

The Melbourne Modern Quilt Guild began 2022 with a short challenge that sought to stretch the imagination of those who participated. The challenge: Make a modern mini quilt (max. 24” square) based on one of these three traditional Baltimore blocks:

Participants were asked to take some of the core features of these Baltimore blocks – like the use of colours, natural elements and symmetry – and re-imagine them in a modern way.

We started the challenge at the end of January and finished on 28 February. The following images reveal the fabulous results!
