Back Cover Information

When Marsha D. Radtke discovered a tattered quilt in her rural Maryland parsonage attic, she found more than an old textile. The read and green Baltimore Album quilt had linked signatures of women with well-known are family names.

It was the superb workmanship that inspired Marsha to recreate the quilt's 25 patterns (One of them repeated in different fabrics) and share this historic treasure with others.

  • Re-drafted for precision and easy to use
  • Create your own version of this rare, pre-Civil War classic
  • Pattern reference for those who desire authenticity in their work

Marsha D. RadtkeAbout the Author

This book was inspired by the many quilting friends who wanted to make the quilt Marsha D. Radtke replicated from the amazingly intact, signed, 1850s Baltimore Album quilt she came upon in her rural Maryland parsonage attic.

Marsha grew up in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, and started sewing when she was a child, receiving much inspiration from her grandmother who could do anything with a needle and thread.

As a young mother, Marsha made the family's clothes and home decorating items. She taught beginner through tailoring classes via her local homemakers' group. After working as an operations manager for several years, she and her husband retired to Tennessee in 1993, where she began quilting.

Applique has been her first love and has won her many ribbons and awards, beginning with her very first appliqued quilt. She feels she is very blessed to have found something she really enjoys and so many wonderful friends with whom to share.
