Hand-Quilted Baltimore Album Center

After a lot of hours of deliberation and advice from a number of quilting friends, I finally decided how to quilt the center block on my first Baltimore Album Quilt.  I had previously quilted it in two different ways on my longarm but wasn't happy with either result so tore them both out.  This month I finally decided to try hand-quilting the center with a diagonal single cross-hatch.  I finally feel like the quilt is finished and I can celebrate the huge accomplishement involved in making this special quilt.  Here is a picture of the completed center.

Here is a picture of the quilt hanging on my dining room wall.

It's beautiful Linda, I didn't realize you hand quilted the center. Now you should enter it in the next quilt show. I know that it will be loved by all and they would especially enjoy your story behind it. :^).
