JaM Patch News -- An Invitation to Baltimore Christmas and A Charmed Life
You are cordially invited to participate in two exciting Block of the Month Programs
A Charmed Life
These programs are designed to assist you in the completion of these
beautiful and unique quilts.
Please read on or check out the information on
A BOM designed for the Christmas Lover in us all.
Baltimore Album quilts were made in Baltimore between 1846 and 1852.
Those beautiful quilts inspire me to create my Baltimore style quilt.
When I think of Christmas I think of the Thomas Nast drawing of Santa.
He "invented" the image popularly recognized as Santa Claus today.
His Santa Claus was published for the 1862 Christmas season Harper's Weekly cover.
Mr. Nash and his drawings were the best recruiter for the union side
stated by President Abe Lincoln.
It was both of these elements that inspired me to make my Baltimore Christmas quilt.
The 24" center medallion Santa block is surrounded by twelve 12" album style blocks
with holly and berry swag applique border. 70" x 70."
The store sample is
raw-edge applique using a fusible web. The fabric provided in the JaM Patch
kits can be done in this fashion or needle-turned applique. When you
purchase the patterns and kit from the JaM Patch you are eligible for the
FREE classes that will be run twice a month for this quilt.
If you have purchased your patterns and fabric elsewhere,
you can still attend for a fee of $10.00 per class.

The JaM Patch presents
Robyn Pandolph’s “A Charmed Life”
We have kitted this special Block of the Month Program to assist you in completion of this quilt top.
The fabrics for each block have been individually cut and are in the corresponding pattern folder. We have reduced the amounts suggested if possible to keep the cost of the fabric kit to a minimum. The yardage of backgrounds is whole and to be cut as directed for the 12 blocks. Block 13 is cut separately.
All the block background have been done “reverse appliqué” with the blue dot cut away from the floral fabric. This cut out section is then used throughout the appliqués. Save all your cut outs!
Our sample has been completed with fusible appliqué. We used Steam a Seam Lite. When the pieces have been fused down they are then stitched down to assure they are there to stay. The stitching also enhances the designs. We chose to stitch the appliqués down before the blocks have been put together.
Pattern: “A Charmed Life” $81.00
Fabric Kit: $136.00 (does not include binding and backing)
We will conduct workshops for completion for $10 each session. They are FREE if you have purchased youPar kit and patterns from The JaM Patch. Mondays 10 – 2
October 11th Blocks 1 – 3 November 15th Blocks 4 – 6 December 13th Blocks 7 – 9
