Baltimore Album Quilt - Center Block for First Baltimore Album Quilt

Here is the center block for the first Baltimore Album quilt I'm making.  It is a silhouette of my husband & I. 

Center Block:  I Bless the Day I Found You

And here's a close-up of the block.  The silhouettes are inked.  Believe me when I say, I was pretty scared to start doing all of the inking on this quilt.  I was afraid that I'd ruin some of the blocks that I had spent so many hours appliqueing.  They all turned out to be okay though - whew!  I'll post updated photos of the blocks for this quilt with the inking on them next.

I picked out fabric for the sashing and the borders the other day so now I'm really getting excited to get the quilt put together.  I plan to applique a swag border with ribbons between each swag.  I can hardly wait to get this one finished!  Especially now that I can see the finish line.
