Home - Baltimore Album Style Quilt

Last week after I finished preparing the 3 projects for our upcoming Foothills meeting, I also decided to pull out a Baltimore Album Quilt I had started, and finish it.  The blocks were already completed so I had only the sashing and borders to do.  Made me wonder what I was waiting for.  I think the darling rabbit quilt I quilted for Joy inspired me to get busy and finish it so I could quilt some more feathers - I just love doing feathers.  Anyway, here's a picture of the top before I started quilting it.  When I'm finished with the quilting, I'll post another picture so you can see how I decided to quilt it (expect a few feathers).  The center block on this 9 block quilt is a depiction of our family home in Colorado.  Rick & I and the kids all loved that house and there were so many good memories made there.

I still need to decide on a name for this quilt.  Maybe something with "home" in it.  Ideas welcome.  The lettering in the last row reads, "Every house where love abides and friendship is a guest, is surely home, and home sweet home, for there the heart can rest."

Thanks Rebecca. I'm still quilting it and trying a few new things. Thankfully, I'm pleased with how the quilting looks.
