This quilt is part of my series “Baltimore Goes Modern.” In the case of this quilt I used a traditional block called “Laurel Leaf” from a Baltimore Album quilt as inspiration. The single block was expanded to the final size of the quilt. Lorraine and I used extensive ruler work to capture the graphic look of modern quilts. The feather work gives a nod to traditional heirloom quilting.

In collaboration with Lorraine Kennedy Williams.
