From October 3 - November 26, 2018 Baltimore Applique Society(BAS) will auction off small single block album quilts from original and antique quilt block patterns.

One half of the proceeds from the Bits of Baltimore auctions will be donated to museums and historical societies for the conservation of their antique quilts. The other half will by used by BAS for quilt education on other activities.

Constructing an Applique Block

Creating an appliqué block is a time consuming, labor of love. One method used to estimate the time it takes to appliqué a block is to assign each appliquéd piece a time value of 15 minutes. Some pieces will take more time some less. This time value includes washing the fabric, sketching the placement of pieces on background fabric, making the templates, cutting out the pieces, basting and then using an appliqué stitch place them on the fabric. This does not include the quilting and binding time. The majority of the blocks in this auction have taken more than 100 hours to construct. We hope that you will cherish these reinterpreted "bits of the past " as much as we have enjoyed creating them.
