1847 Baltimore Brides Antique Wool Quilt or Floral Beauty Wool Quilt? I love the look of both of these quilts .. and I’ve seen the originals up close … and these pictures just will never do them justice! Two totally different types of designs, you can se how talented each of the designers are.
The Baltimore Brides Quilt, by Jackie Apessos, is unique because it is wool applique on cotton flannel. The old style motifs are clean and really showcase the heirlooms made in the 1800s.
But, then there’s the Floral Beauty! The quilt, called The Original Thymes, is a detailed look into a Wild Thymes Garden! The intricate florals and unique outer border really make this a more modern type quilt than the Baltimore Brides. The Original Thymes is all wool on wool. Two totally different quilts, each an Heirloom to be passed on from generation to generation!
