Baltimore Album Quilts are near and dear to my heart. I'm writing a report on them for my quilt history group, and it's a mammoth task. I've got a stack of books and materials two feet high next to my computer.
Here is one that sold on New Year's Day 2010 for $28,250. Some of the signatures of Baltimore residents on the quilt include Louisa Blessing and Elizabeth Sharp. Oh, to have lived in Baltimore in the 1840's!
