Popular in the mid-19th century, a Baltimore album quilt is a collection of applique blocks in highly stylized patterns of flowers, fruit, trees, leaves, and vines. A specialist in this popular style, Sienkiewicz has written four previous titles on the subject, including Baltimore Album Quilts: Historic Notes and Antique Pat terns ( LJ 4/15/91). The current book contains design ideas, techniques, and 39 patterns for dimensional flowers and basketry. Unfortunately, the ten sequential lessons for making baskets, wreaths, and flowers contain many references to techniques described in previous volumes. Also, though the line drawings are detailed and easy to follow, the pullout design sheet for cutting and pasting combinations (not seen) may be inappropriate for a circulating book. Recommended where there has been an interest in the previous books.
