Artist Description: I used a pattern from Elly Sienkiewicz's book, The Best of Baltimore Beauties, Part II. I've always liked this block because of the ruched roses and other dimensional flowers; and I made another one earlier for my own full-sized Baltimore Album quilt. This time, I enlarged the pattern ten percent and slightly elongated it so that I could frame it in an oval instead of a circle or square. Once I finished the appliqué, I had to dredge up from my memory of high school geometry how to make a perfect oval using three pins and a string. A youtube video helped to refresh my memory. It worked!
