What is Baltimore on the Prairie?
Baltimore on the Prairie began in 2009 to bring the art of Baltimore Album quilts, along with hand applique techniques, to the heartland of the US. Now in its 14th year, attendees from 35 of our states, along with attendees from Australia, Ireland, Canada and Germany have gathered in September to expand their applique skills, meet up with friends across the globe and enjoy 4 days of stitching and relaxation at Lied Lodge in Nebraska City, NE. Even though the Baltimore Album style of applique is the heart of the conference, Baltimore on the Prairie has evolved to include sessions on wool applique, dimensional techniques, modern looks and much more.
Faculty and Open Studio
Our teachers are experts within their field of applique and each offer something different whether it be in technique, style or type of applique. While some designs may appear complex, all teachers are adept at working with confident beginners. And for those with advanced skills, there is always something new to learn!
Open Studio is a classroom setting for independent study and stitching. This is ideal for attendees who wish to stitch on their own projects, join with friends from around the world and enjoy the relaxation of Lied Lodge.
