Our current guest in Episode 901 State-of-the-Art Quilting: Tradition Meets Innovation - Susan Brubaker Knapp, has a delightful block of the month pattern entitled, Heart's Desire.  It is Susan's take on a Baltimore Album quilt and finishes at 62" x 62"  It has a modern twist and features hearts, vines, and leaves.  Susan used hand-dyed fabrics, but image what this would look like on a white background using prints or batiks.  The pattern is available at Susan's site.
